Wisconsin Democrats gathering for their annual state convention this weekend are focused on re-electing Gov. Tony Evers and defeating Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, but also know that history is against them in the midterm year and voters face high inflation, rising gas prices and growing concerns about a recession. It showed Evers slightly ahead of his Republican challengers, while Johnson, having reversed a pledge not to seek a third term in the U.S. Senate, was about even with each of the top Democrats running against him. The prospect for Johnson improved, and worsened for Evers, the lower the projected turnout in the poll.
