By  | 

CADOTT, Wis. (WEAU) -- A farmer and Iraq War veteran is challenging a two-term incumbent for Wisconsin's 68th Assembly District.

Democrat Jeff Peck of Cadott announced his candidacy on Monday. He had previously filed the necessary paperwork with the Government Accountability Board to get his name on the ballot. Peck says he wants to address what he says is a disconnect between farmers and consumers. He also says he wants to help small businesses grow in his district.

Peck and Kathy Bernier (R-Lake Hallie) are the only two candidates whose names will appear on the ballot for the 68th district. Bernier was first elected to the seat in 2010. The district includes eastern Eau Claire County, southern Chippewa County, western Clark County, Osseo, and parts of Jackson County.
