State Senate

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

  • Paul Piotrowski is a decorated former Navy officer who served his home of Stevens Point for over 26 years, most recently as City Clerk. He’ll put the middle class first in the economic response to coronavirus and work to get help for working families and small businesses that are struggling here at home. Piotrowski worked a good blue-collar job and gets that college might not be for everyone, but a good-paying job should be. He'll also fight to expand access to affordable health care and protect people with pre-existing conditions from losing their health care. His opponent, first term Senator Pat Testin supported giving up to three billion dollars in corporate giveaways to FoxConn. After accepting campaign donations from health insurance PACs, he single-handedly blocked protections for pre-existing conditions from passing the State Senate. Testin would ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood. He has actively opposed the state’s Safer-at-Home order and backed the lawsuit to prematurely end it while cases of coronavirus were still growing. Piotrowski is the progressive choice.

  • Brad Pfaff grew up on a dairy farm in Western Wisconsin and continues to farm today. He has a son with diabetes, protecting coverage for pre-existing conditions and getting the cost of drugs like insulin down are personal for him. Pfaff knows there are many people willing to work hard but who college isn’t the right path for. He’ll push for funding to bring more job training programs and invest in technical colleges. Pfaff is pro-choice and has called for more investment in education. Republican candidate Dan Kapanke served in the Senate before being recalled in 2011. His tenure was marked by votes that favored his corporate donors. He has also been a subject of multiple ethics scandals, including using taxpayer resources to staff a campaign event and using money from a charity foundation to pay down personal debts. Kapanke has voted for corporate tax cuts and defunding BadgerCare and supported repealing the law that protects people with pre-existing conditions.  He also favors repealing the Affordable Care Act. He is anti-choice and has been endorsed by right wing groups that want to outlaw abortion. Brad Pfaff is more progressive than Dan Kapanke.
