Candidate hopefuls Jeremy Ryan and Mary Jo Walter stood on the corner of Washington and Perry Avenues Friday with large, green signs declaring their support of legalized marijuana. They were there to collect signatures from supporters for legalizing marijuana as well as to gather the required number of signatures to get their names on the ballot for the August primaries.
Jeremy, who said he is a Republican running against Rep. Paul Ryan for his seat in the First Congressional District of Wisconsin, is more well known for leading Democratic protests during the recall elections against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. He was also the executive director of Defending Wisconsin PAC, a group that actively took part in the recall elections.
Walters wants to challenge Democratic state Sen. John Lehman for the spot on the ballot come November to be the next Lt. Governor.
