MADISON, Wis. -

Wisconsin is in an election year, and Democratic governor candidate Mary Burke is hoping to hit the ground running in the New Year.

“People want leadership in this state that is going to bring people together. We do our best work, we focus on the issues that matter most to the people in Wisconsin. I hear people concerned about the same issues, whether you’re in Ashland or Kenosha or here in Madison,” Burke said.

Burke toured Uplands Cheese in Dodgeville Wednesday.

She said she’s excited about the campaign and recent fundraising numbers that show she’s raised more than $1.8 million. Burke said a majority of those donations have been less than $100.

Fundraising reports are due to the Government Accountability Board by the end of the month.
