State Assembly

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

  • Lifelong District 35 resident Tyler Ruprecht decided to run for Assembly because he did not see anyone else stepping up to provide the leadership he felt was necessary for the 35th AD. On healthcare, Ruprecht stands for expanding BadgerCare and creating a BadgerCare public option while eliminating deductibles and improving rural hospitals. He also believes in raising the minimum wage, ending CAFO subsidies, legalizing marijuana, nonpartisan redistricting, expanding broadband access, and promoting clean water and clean energy. His opponent, Calvin Callahan, is opposed to red-flag gun violence prevention laws, is anti-choice, and believes that the free market will solve Wisconsin's healthcare problems. Ruprecht is the progressive choice in this race.

  • Democrat Brian Giles is running on a progressive platform that emphasizes democracy reform, and the health and safety of Wisconsinites. He supports a shift to entirely mail-in voting, independent nonpartisan redistricting, and getting big money out of politics. He also supports a $15/hour minimum wage, universal background checks on all gun sales, expanding BadgerCare, and legalizing marijuana. He is running against Republican Donna Rozar, who is endorsed by Pro-Life Wisconsin and says she has been active in the anti-choice movement. She has also underplayed the COVID-19 pandemic and opposed the Governor's mask mandate and safer-at-home order. Giles is the progressive choice in this race.

  • Marathon County Board Member Jeff Johnson is running for Assembly to push for improving public schools, infrastructure investments, and BadgerCare expansion. Another issue that is important to Johnson is regulating predatory payday lenders, who are taking advantage of Wisconsinites that have fallen on hard times. His opponent is incumbent Patrick Snyder, a former right wing radio talk show host who won election thanks to massive spending on his behalf by backers of taxpayer funded private school vouchers. Snyder has since voted in lockstep with his Republican party leaders. Johnson is the more progressive choice in this race.

  • Richard Pulcher is the Democratic candidate for the 87th District. Pulcher's biography includes a varied work history; he is recently retired from the Clark County Health Care Center and his 2020 candidacy is endorsed by Wisconsin AFL-CIO.
