-- Special elections will be held May third for three open Wisconsin Assembly seats.
MADISON - Special elections will be held May third for three open Wisconsin Assembly seats.
Governor Scott Walker announced the date today. The Assembly posts were vacated when Republican Mark Gottlieb of Port Washington was named the transportation secretary – Mike Huebsch of West Salem was named Walker’s administration chief – and Scott Gunderson of Waterford was picked as the executive assistant in the DNR.
Candidates for all three seats have until March eighth to file nomination papers with the state Government Accountability Board. And if more than two people run for any of the seats, a primary will be held April fifth, the same day as the spring general elections.
