Present at the picnic were two front running candidates, Tony Evers and Kathleen Vinehout.
For the past few months both candidates have been visiting cities across the state, spreading their message and hoping to gain support from voters ahead of Tuesday's primary.
Both say their experiences would make them a good fit to be Wisconsin's next governor.
Dear Editor: I don’t understand this paragraph in Paul Fanlund's recent column "Last thoughts on the race to face Scott Walker": “These factors, in turn, have led to a lack of information and caused voter indecision. Name recognition is weak across the board.”
My clear best candidate for governor is Kathleen Vinehout. The background information on her experience and ability to formulate policy is extensive. It is readily available in her columns and the legislative record. Any Democratic insider who does not know her record is hampered by the insider's own unwillingness to look. I suggest the overworked press of Wisconsin has also been unable to give the coverage to the field of candidates that each one deserves.
Dear Editor: The Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial primary is Aug. 14 and early voting has already begun. My choice in this election is Kathleen Vinehout.

Kathleen Vinehout Democratic gubernatorial candidate says she will be ready to hit ground running if elected the state’s next governor
Of the seven Democratic candidates running to unseat incumbent Republican Gov. Scott Walker, state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout is arguably the most prepared; who will hit the ground running from day one if elected.
“I’ve done my homework, I’ve seen how many lives have been affected (by Walker’s and the Republican controlled legislature’s policies),” said Vinehout during a recent interview. “I think I know how to fix the problems with the same (state) dollars, but with different priorities.
Kathleen Vinehout is my choice for Wisconsin governor.
She’s been my senator in the 31st Senate District and has consistently impressed me with her intelligence, stamina and willingness to connect with people in every forum. From rural Wisconsin, Vinehout is familiar with issues of concern to the broadest spectrum of Wisconsinites.
The race for the Democratic nomination for governor is crowded with credible candidates and a case can be made for each of them. I give especially high marks to candidates who have brought fresh proposals to the competition (as Mike McCabe has with his proposal for experimenting with universal basic income strategies as a response to automation-related job losses), and to candidates who talk about using all the powers of the governor’s office (as Kelda Roys has with her promise that, if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court, she will pardon anyone charged under an archaic anti-abortion law that remains on the books in Wisconsin).
