State Senator, District 20

State Senator

No Good Choices

There is no progressive choice in this race. Sen. Duey Stroebel is running unopposed for his third term in the State Senate. He has a long conservative record which includes favoring harsher criminal justice laws, right-to-work legislation, and repealing environmental protections. Most recently, despite thousands of Wisconsinites struggling to make ends meet in a gloabl health pandemic, Stroebel has spoken in favor of ending a moratorium on cutting off household utility service for people who are behind on their bills.

Representative, District 59

State Representative

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.
