SPARTA, Wis. (WKBT) — Residents of western Wisconsin got a chance to learn more about the GOP candidates for lieutenant governor on Sunday.
The forum, hosted at the Sparta American Legion by the Monroe County Republican Party, was open to the public.
There, candidates introduced themselves and answered questions about drug control policies, policing and the economy, among other topics.
“This forum is very important because I think it’s important to talk to western Wisconsin about these issues. I think western Wisconsin is often overlooked in our post and in statewide politics,” said David Varnam, one of the candidates who attended the forum.
The GOP candidates for lieutenant governor are David King, Will Martin, Roger Roth, Patrick Testin, David Varnam, Cindy Werner, Jonathan Wichmann and Kyle Yudes.
All eight candidates were invited to participate.
Peng Her and Sara Rodriguez are the Democratic candidates.
The primary election for both parties will take place on August 9.
