Hillary Clinton wins straw poll at Wisconsin Democratic Party convention

WISCONSIN DELLS, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's most-involved Democrats want Hillary Clinton to be our next president.  

The former secretary of state was the big winner in a straw poll at the state Democratic convention at Wisconsin Dells over the weekend.  

Clinton received 185 votes to 81 for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Vice President Joe Biden was a distant third with 18.  

As expected, Mary Burke was the overwhelming choice for governor in the WisPolitics.Com straw poll. She received 317 votes from delegates and others at the Democratic convention -- while Assembly Democrat Brett Hulsey of Madison got 14 votes.  

Racine Senate Democrat John Lehman was the overwhelming choice for Burke's running mate. Lehman received 299 votes for lieutenant governor, to 27 for Mary Jo Walters of Milwaukee.  

For attorney general, Democrats favored Milwaukee Assembly Democrat Jon Richards with 167 votes to 111 for Jefferson County DA Susan Happ, and 54 for Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne.

Those three will square off in an August 12th primary, with the winner to face Republican Waukesha DA Brad Schimel in November.
