MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It appears that state Representative Brett Hulsey will be on the ballot against Mary Burke in the August 12th primary for governor.
The state Government Accountability Board said Tuesday that Hulsey appears to have the 2,000 valid signatures he needed.
An initial review shows him having 131 more than the minimum. Another Democratic hopeful, Marcia Mercedes Perkins, did not make the cut.
Both major candidates for governor, Burke and Republican incumbent Scott Walker, each turned in around 3,800 signatures -- almost twice as many as they needed.
Challenges to the petitions and their signatures can be filed through Thursday. The accountability board plans to certify primary candidates next Tuesday.
