  • Small business owner and substitute teacher Neal Plotkin is challenging longtime Senator Alberta Darling. Plotkin's priorities include fighting for fair legislative maps, investing in public schools, and improving public infrastructure. He has expressed his support for science based approaches to the COVID-19 pandemic, including Gov. Evers' mask mandate. His opponent, Alberta Darling, has been instrumental in suppressing progressive priorities as the powerful Co-Chair of the Joint Finance Committee. With her hold on the Wisconsin's purse strings, she has done the bidding of monied special interests. She has supported voter suppression, opposed Badgercare expansion, and declined to adequately fund for public schools. In her time as an elected official, she has become far more conservative on choice and gun violence prevention, following her party to the right. She is partially responsible for Republican inaction during the ongoing pandemic and called for the legislature to reconvene to strike down Governor Evers' mask mandate. Plotkin is the more progressive choice.

Although Andraca has some previous political experience working at the Environmental Law and Policy Center in the 1990s, she became involved in local politics as a volunteer for Moms Demand Action and was inspired to run for Assembly when current Assembly member Jim Ott refused to support universal background checks. During her campaign, Andraca has been an advocate for action on climate change, BadgerCare expansion and public education. Her opponent, Assembly Member Jim Ott, is a reliable vote for just about anything that Republicans propose. Ott has supported every GOP budget, including Governor Walker’s infamous 2011 budget that slashed public education and healthcare. He does not believe that climate change is real, votes against reproductive choice, consistently favors corporate subsidies, including the Foxconn incentives, and votes against labor on every important issue. Deb Andraca is the progressive choice.

  • Longtime teacher Elizabeth Lochner-Abel is running for Assembly to represent the rural community that she has served for 37 years. She wants to expand Medicaid and ensure every Wisconsin student gets a quality education by reducing class sizes, equipping classrooms with adequate supplies, and enable districts to recruit and retain quality teachers. She also believes in investing in rural communities by expanding broadband access, repairing critical infrastructure, and supporting farmers. Protecting natural resources is also a value that Lochner-Abel cherishes. She is facing long-time Assemblywoman Amy Loudenbeck. Although Loudenbeck has talked about public health and health care, she has opposed expanding BadgerCare, criticized Gov. Evers' Safer at Home orders and has been a part of the GOP Assembly majority that has not taken action since April on the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis. While she talks about public health, her actions in the legislature have prevented Wisconsinites from accessing health insurance. Although Lochner-Abel's stances are not as progressive as some other legislative candidates across the state, she is the more progressive choice in this race.

  • Minocqua business leader Kirk Bangstad is running because he believes that strong values inform good policies and that those values are lacking in the state legislature.

He believes that a living wage for all is achievable through a $15 minimum wage, a clean energy economy, and increasing broadband access.

He was among the legislators who forced Wisconsinites to choose between their vote and risking their health in the April election and is opposed to the mask mandate. Bangstad is the progressive choice.
