Wisconsin Republicans members are making an unusual push for Governor-elect Tony Evers to retain the state tourism secretary. Ten G-O-P members of the Assembly tourism committee sent Evers a letter urging him to keep Stephanie Klett in charge of the Department of Tourism. The letter says Klett helped grow tourism from a 14-point-eight-billion-dollar industry in 2011 to more than 20-point-six-billion dollars today. Committee chairman Travis Tranel has started an online petition demanding Klett keep her job. Nearly two-thousand people had signed it as of Wednesday.
