A lawmaker from western Wisconsin says her varied background and experience separates her from the other Democrats running to unseat Governor Walker.
Sen. Kathleen Vinehout announced her candidacy yesterday.
She says she came to politics late in life. She was a health care manager and college professor, before becoming a full-time dairy farmer. Vinehout says that’s where she learned, first-hand, the problems getting affordable health insurance.
Vinehout is from the Alma area. She ran for governor in the 2012 recall, and she considered another campaign in 2014. She’s one of seven candidates running against Walker.
