  • Joel Jacobsen is challenging Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos as a write-in candidate to improve access to healthcare, protect the environment, and lower the middle class tax burden. Jacobsen believes in BadgerCare expansion, fully funding public schools, investing in technical colleges, and investing in renewable energy. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has been largely responsible for creating partisan gridlock in Madison. He is responsible for enacting an even more partisan gerrymander after the 2020 census, wasting $1 million in taxpayer funds on a partisan, Big Lie-fueled sham inquiry led by Trump-supporter Michael Gableman, continued attacks on reprodutive freedom and equality for LGBTQ+ folks in Wisconsin, standing in the way of expanding BadgerCare in Wisconsin which would bring in $1 billion federal dollars that would transform Wisconsin's economy, and much more. Also running as a write-in is conservative candidate Adam Steen, who is advocating for decertification of the 2020 presidential election and who lost the Republican primary to Vos. In the 63rd Assembly District race, Jacobsen is the more progressive choice.
