Madison Mayor Paul Soglin says he’s ready take on Governor Scott Walker. There are now more than a dozen Democrats in the primary race, and Soglin says his own polling shows him edging out state schools superintendent Tony Evers.
“Evers is at 25, I’m at 23, and frankly what the poll says is the more information people get about all of us, I continue to go up.”
“It’s not as simple as downsizing the agreement. What it means is sitting down with Foxconn, sitting down with economists, and getting real about the size of the state’s investment.”
Soglin also said voters are not concerned about his age — he’ll be 73 on Saturday — his “tax and spend liberal” reputation, or meeting with Fidel Casto in 1975.
