Mike McCabe, leader of nonprofit that promotes change in government, files paperwork to run for governor
Mike McCabe filed paperwork with state election officials Monday, July 17th to establish a campaign committee. The move allows him to begin raising money. McCabe said in an email to The Associated Press he expects to announce he’ll run as a Democrat in September. He had been considering running as an independent.
McCabe leads the nonpartisan group Blue Jean Nation, which promotes itself as working to promote change in government.
Milwaukee businessman Andy Gronik announced earlier this month he will run for governor as a Democrat. A number of other Democrats, including state schools Superintendent Tony Evers, are pondering a run.
