NEW INFORMATION: Kulp wins Republican primary for 69th Assembly District

By  | 

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (WEAU) -- People headed to the polls Tuesday to pick a Republican candidate to head into a special election in Wisconsin’s 69th Assembly District.

The candidates were Tommy Dahlen of Granton, Bob Kulp of Stratford, Alanna Feddick of Marshfield, and Scott Kenneth Noble of Marshfield.

With all 56 precincts, Bob Kulp of Stratford won the election with 44% of the vote. Kulp will now advance to a special election on November 19.

The election is being held because former Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder, an Abbotsford Republican, left the post for a position as a lobbyist for the paper industry.

He will face Democratic Kenneth Slezak of Neillsville, who ran unopposed Tuesday night.
