Kelda Roys earned national headlines in March for a video her campaign released highlighting her role as a former state legislator and a mother — a video that, at one point, showed her breastfeeding her baby while talking about legislation she worked on in the state Capitol.
Roys, a Madison Democrat and the CEO and founder of real estate tech company OpenHomes, is one of nine major candidates vying for the chance to challenge Republican Gov. Scott Walker in November. Cap Times political reporter Jessie Opoien sat down with her recently to talk about her campaign.
Listen to this episode of Wedge Issues to hear why the 38-year-old candidate thinks Wisconsin is ready for "a new generation" of leaders, what she would do as governor, and to learn about the time musician Robbie Fulks wrote a song about her.

Next week, we'll talk with Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, another Democratic candidate for governor.
