Rep. Hulsey says he has enough signatures to run for governor

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Democratic candidate for governor Brett Hulsey says he has more than the 2,000 signatures required to get on the ballot to challenge former state Commerce Secretary Mary Burke for the party's nomination.

Hulsey, a state representative from Madison, said Monday he had about 2,200 signatures but planned to collect more before turning them in. He told 27 News he likely would turn his signatures in after 2:00 p.m. but before the 5:00 p.m. Monday deadline.

Burke is expected to be the Democratic nominee to take on Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Burke submitted 3,778 signatures on Friday. Walker has yet to turn his in.

Dennis Fehr, running as a member of the Peoples Party, turned in 2,014 signatures last month.

If two or more candidates are running for the same office, they will face each other in an Aug. 12 primary.
