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

  • Patty Schachtner is running for re-election after winning a special election in 2018. Schachtner has worked in healthcare for decades and backs a law to guarantee people can get coverage if they have a pre-existing condition. As a Senator, she has also worked to support efforts to improve access to healthcare in rural areas. She got her EMT certificate from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and knows that college isn't for everyone, and she is committed to adding more skills training classes in our high schools and technical colleges to help Wisconsin students add skills and get better jobs. Her opponent, Republican Assembly Member Rob Stafsholt is very conservative. He is anti-choice, pro-vouchers, and a shill for big business. Stafsholt voted repeatedly to let health insurers deny coverage to people for pre-existing conditions in Wisconsin and to allow insurance companies to charge people more for a pre-existing condition if they lose their insurance. He also voted to give FoxConn up to three billion dollars in Wisconsin taxpayer money. Schachtner is the more progressive choice.

  • John Calabrese is running on a bold, progressive platform. The woodworker has made fighting big money in politics one of his top issues.

Calabrese is the more progressive choice

  • Dr. Chris Kapsner is running to heal Wisconsin's healthcare system, public schools, infrastructure, and environment. He believes in investing in transportation and rural broadband funding, fully funding the DNR, fair maps, and Medicaid expansion. As an ER doctor, he sees the GOP response to the COVID-19 as a failure of inaction and believes more can be done. Incumbent Republican Representative Rob Summerfield was a part of that inaction, opposing the Safer at Home order. Summerfield also wrote a letter opposing federal aid to states but received federal aid himself in the form of a forgivable PPP loan to his immediate family member's business. Kapsner is the more progressive choice.
