“A fourth former official in Gov. Scott Walker's (R) administration has publicly denounced the governor as he seeks a third term — this time, leaving his six-figure job to do so. Paul Jadin, the first CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., resigned from his $208,000 position as president of the Madison Region Economic Partnership just before he and two other former Walker officials released a letter to the Wisconsin State Journal blasting the governor. … In the letter signed by Jadin, former Department of Corrections Secretary Ed Wall and former Department of Financial Institutions Secretary Peter Bildsten, the former Walker officials urge voters to support Evers for governor because Walker's administration ‘lacked integrity.’” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

RGA. The RGA launched a TV ad attacking state schools Superintendent Tony Evers (D) on Friday. The ad paints Evers as weak on crime, featuring a mother who says, "Evers’ dangerous ideas make me nervous ... [he] wants to reduce Wisconsin’s prison population by 50 percent." (release)

SANDERS. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) “will visit Wisconsin Monday as part of a national tour to support Democratic candidates in the Nov. 6 elections. … In Milwaukee he’ll appear with Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) and” state schools Superintendent Tony Evers (D). “It’s the second recent Wisconsin trip for Sanders, who held rallies in July in Eau Claire and Janesville … Democrats hope the upcoming rallies, about two weeks before Election Day, will energize young voters to whom Sanders appealed in his 2016 presidential bid — but whose demographic traditionally turns out in low numbers in midterms — to show up this time.” (La Crosse Tribune)
