Sara Rodriguez and Roger Roth to compete for lieutenant governor in November

Via WPR:

While not the major focus of Wisconsin’s primary election, races for lieutenant governor, state treasurer and secretary of state were decided Tuesday.

Democrat Sara Rodriguez and Republican Roger Roth will be their parties’ candidates for lieutenant governor in the fall.

Rodriguez and Roth won out in crowded fields for both parties, with 10 total candidates running for lieutenant governor. 

In the race for state treasurer, Republican John Leiber won, while the Democratic race was still too close to call as of midnight. Aaron Richardson led with 38 percent, Gillian Battino had 36.6 percent and Angelito Tenorio trailed behind with 25.4 percent of the Democratic votes for state treasurer.

For secretary of state, longtime incumbent Doug La Follette easily won the nomination for the Democrats with 63.4 percent of the vote. Amy Loudenbeck’s race for the Republican nominee for secretary of state was closer — with her garnering 46.8 percent of votes, according to unofficial reports from the Associated Press. 

Winning candidates for these three offices said they are preparing for the Nov. 8 general election by collaborating with their parties and connecting with voters.
