State Senator

State Assembly

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

Representative, District 34

State Representative

  • Kirk Bangstad photo
  • Minocqua business leader Kirk Bangstad is running because he believes that strong values inform good policies and that those values are lacking in the state legislature. Bangstad believes in expanding Medicaid, creating a BadgerCare public option, and ultimately transitioning to BadgerCare for All. He believes that a living wage for all is achievable through a $15 minimum wage, a clean energy economy, and increasing broadband access. Bangstad also supports nonpartisan redistricting, ending mass incarceration, decriminalizing recreational marijuana, directing public funding exclusively to public education, and eventually making technical colleges and 4-year colleges tuition-free. Assemblyman Rob Swearingen is in favor of deregulation and has failed to listen to experts and scientists during the pandemic. He was among the legislators who forced Wisconsinites to choose between their vote and risking their health in the April election and is opposed to the mask mandate. Bangstad is the progressive choice.

Representative, District 35

State Representative

  • Tyler Ruprecht photo
  • 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.
