Gubernatorial candidate Hulsey stops in La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Brett Hulsey made a stop in La Crosse Sunday.

Hulsey said his plan for Wisconsin is better than fellow Democrat Mary Burke's or Governor Scott Walker's. Hulsey said he would increase investment in higher education as part of his economic policy. While he supports Walker's proposed tuition freeze extension, Hulsey said recent cuts to the UW system's budget are bad for Wisconsin's economy.

"UW systems took about a $280 million cut, our public school children and teachers took about a $800 million cut. Remember Wisconsin wasn't broke, we had a $70 million surplus so these [cuts] were unnecessary," Hulsey said.

Burke, Hulsey, and any other democrats to enter the race will first face off in a primary August 12th with the winner advancing to face Governor Walker on November 4th.
