State Senate

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below State Senate races on your ballot.

  • 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.

No Good Choices

Assemblyman Timothy Ramthun is running unopposed. Ramthun is a rubber stamp for conservative leadership, as evidenced by a well reported occasion where he voted for an amendment and asked what was in it a month later, writing that the provision was "deeply disturbing." The provision made it much more difficult for essential workers to obtain worker's compensation if they contract coronavirus in the course of their jobs. Ramthun is fiscally conservative and is anti-choice. There is no progressive candidate in this race.

No Good Choices

Incumbent Republican Rep. Cindi Duchow is running unopposed. She describes herself as "very conservative." Duchow has also responded poorly to the COVID-19 crisis, applauding the end of the Stay at Home order and receiving a forgivable PPP loan for her business after writing a letter to the congressional delegation opposing aid to states. There is no progressive choice in this race.
