It’s the clearest sign yet that the Republican primary for Wisconsin governor is going to be heated and expensive.
Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, the state’s largest business group, yesterday endorsed Rebecca Kleefisch for governor. They say she has a plan for businesses in the state. The announcement came just before Dick Uihlein, the billionaire businessman, released a statement that encouraged Kevin Nicholson to run for governor as well. Uihlein said Nicholson would have his full support.
