Incumbent Democrat Doug La Follette faced Republican challenger Julian Bradley and two third-party candidates, Constitution Party candidate Jerry Broitzman and Libertarian Party candidate Andy Craig, in the general election for Wisconsin Secretary of State. La Follette has held this seat since 1983 and is running to extend his winning streak once again. During his time in office, the powers of the Secretary of State's office have been reduced by the Wisconsin Legislature.
Both Republican primary candidates, Bradley and State Representative Garey Bies, argued that the office had become ceremonial and that the current state was unacceptable. While Bies wanted to eliminate the office and give its remaining powers to other agencies, Bradley's platform was to reform the office and regain its former powers.
Bradley won the Republican nomination in the primary on August 12 by a large margin, though Republican primary voters do not necessarily prefer the office's reform to elimination, considering this issue's relative obscurity. Some of Bradley's support may have come from his emerging status as a candidate with future potential in the Republican Party, which was underlined in late August 2014 when the Republican State Leadership Committee named this race as "one of 14 races to watch" across the country. La Follette was unopposed in the Democratic primary.
