Candidate Stances

To help Wisconsinites compare each of the many candidates for Governor in Wisconsin, we created a 12 question survey that we sent to each of the candidates.

The table below summarizes a few of their responses. To see the full survey responses, which include much more detailed policy positions from many of the candidates and links to their campaign sites, click on the candidate’s name. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order.


Make sure to vote in the primary on August 14th and the general election on November 6th.
