Gubernatorial candidate stopped in La Crosse Sunday

One of the eight Democratic candidates hoping to challenge Governor Scott Walker in November was in the La Crosse area Sunday.

Mike McCabe met with locals at All Star Lanes in La Crosse to lay out his plans and to inspire and engage people from all over the state to “get back into the driver’s seat.”

McCabe helped start the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, a nonpartisan group that specializes in tracking money in the state.

McCabe says he’s running for governor to give the power back to the people of the state and won’t be accepting large checks from corporate donors.

He says, “You know what we gotta do is put principle over party, so often you see the two parties can’t talk to each other, they’re not working together, and they put party ahead of everything, they put party ahead of people, they put party ahead of country and that’s gotta stop, we gotta have a government that works across party boundaries.”

A primary election will be held August 14th.
