Voelkel announced his campaign for Wisconsin's lieutenant governor through a video and press release.
“The last two years have been tough for Wisconsin, and Tony Evers has failed our state,” Voelkel said in a press release. “We need real leadership to ensure that all Wisconsinites can pursue the American dream. We need to fight for opportunity: the opportunity to send your kids to a good school, the opportunity to get a good job, and the opportunity to live in a safe community.”
Prior to working on Johnson's 2016 re-election campaign, Voelkel held positions for former governors Tommy Thompson and Scott Walker.
