MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A field of four Republican candidates is vying for the right to advance to a special election in Wisconsin's 69th Assembly District.
A primary election in the district that encompasses parts of Clark, Marathon, and Wood County is Tuesday. Among the Republican candidates are Tommy Dahlen of Granton, Bob Kulp of Stratford, Alanna Feddick of Marshfield, and Scott Noble of Marshfield. Today's winner advances to the Special Election on November 19.
The election is being held because former Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder, an Abbotsford Republican, left the post to take a job with the Public Service Commission. Suder later declined to take that job in favor of working as a lobbyist for the paper industry.
