Four Dems and a Republican run for open Assembly seat
LA CROSSE - Four Democrats and a Republican are running for a vacant state Assembly seat in La Crosse. They filed nomination papers before a deadline yesterday, in the hopes of replacing Democrat Jennifer Shilling. She moved to the Senate after defeating Republican Dan Kapanke in a recall election last month.
A primary for her former Assembly post will be held October 11th, and the general election is set for November eighth.
