With less than two months to go until November’s general election, a coalition of more than 100 Wisconsin small business owners on Monday backed Gov. Tony Evers’ reelection campaign.

Evers, who is nearing the end of his first term as governor, faces a tough reelection test from Republican challenger Tim Michels, a military veteran and construction mogul.

Monday’s endorsement, first reported by the Cap Times, comes from business owners from across Wisconsin and includes the owners of an adventure park, a jazz club proprietor, the owners of a barbecue restaurant, several salon owners and the owners of dozens of other Wisconsin small businesses.

“Wisconsin’s economy is strong, we are resilient and our small businesses are growing at a record pace,” Evers said in a statement, adding that “Wisconsin’s economic strength is built around small businesses … and they need to be supported.”
