State Assembly

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

  • Longtime teacher Elizabeth Lochner-Abel is running for Assembly to represent the rural community that she has served for 37 years. She wants to expand Medicaid and ensure every Wisconsin student gets a quality education by reducing class sizes, equipping classrooms with adequate supplies, and enable districts to recruit and retain quality teachers. She also believes in investing in rural communities by expanding broadband access, repairing critical infrastructure, and supporting farmers. Protecting natural resources is also a value that Lochner-Abel cherishes. She is facing long-time Assemblywoman Amy Loudenbeck. Although Loudenbeck has talked about public health and health care, she has opposed expanding BadgerCare, criticized Gov. Evers' Safer at Home orders and has been a part of the GOP Assembly majority that has not taken action since April on the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis. While she talks about public health, her actions in the legislature have prevented Wisconsinites from accessing health insurance. Although Lochner-Abel's stances are not as progressive as some other legislative candidates across the state, she is the more progressive choice in this race.

  • Dr. Katherine Gaulke's first priority is affordable healthcare, achieved through the reduction of prescription drug prices and healthcare premiums. She has an extensive list of additional priorities, including curbing mass incarceration, legalizing marijuana, increasing funding for schools, particularly special education programs, enacting non-partisan redistricting, preventing gun violence, protecting reproductive healthcare, and achieving racial equity. Her opponent, Tyler August, is a conservative Republican who favors deregulation, shrinking government and stigmatizing welfare access through excessive barriers to access. August also opposes reforms that would prevent gun violence. Gaulke is the progressive choice in this race.

  • Fort Atkinson City Councilman and small business owner Mason Becker says that he is running to put working families ahead of partisanship and special interests. He supports Medicaid expansion, local control of natural resources, fully funding public schools while holding voucher and charter schools to the same standards as public schools, legalizing marijuana, and eliminating caps on local taxes so that communities can shift the burden away from high property taxes. He faces incumbent Cody Horlacher. According to Horlacher himself, "a vote for Cody Horlacher is a vote for conservative principles." Horlacher is an NRA supporter and has opposed common sense measures to slow the spread of coronavirus. Mason Becker is the more progressive choice in this race.

No Good Choices

Democratic candidate Alan DeYoung describes himself as a moderate, fiscally conservative, pro-business Democrat. Incumbent Chuck Wichgers is a right wing, anti-reproductive health care extremist who helped a group that advocates for the death penalty for women who have had an abortion hold a meeting in the State Capitol. Wichgers is also outspoken in his opposition to requiring vaccines for childhood diseases like mumps and measles. While DeYoung would likely be less regressive than Wichgers, there is no genuinely progressive option in this race.
