The Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Mahlon Mitchell spoke at length about more clearly defining the role of the office in state government. Mitchell said if elected, he wants to be the eyes and ears for the governor around the state and relay that message back to the governor’s office.
He spoke to a crowd of 50 people Wednesday at the Rock County Democratic Party office in Janesville.
With the recall election requiring separate ballots for governor and lt. governor, Mitchell doesn’t think the offices will be occupied by different parties. He also praised political activism on both sides of the aisle.
