• 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. He also favors a BadgerCare for All healthcare system, repealing Act 10, restoring local control, and strengthening environmental protection and enforcement. His opponent, Republican Clint Moses, does not have a detailed platform available, as evidenced by his position on his website on Gun/Property Rights: "We all understand the importance of this."  Moses has been endorsed by the NRA, Wisconsin Right to Life, and Pro-Life Wisconsin.
