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

  • Kelly Westlund is a small business owner, former Northwest regional representative for U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin, and long-time community leader who is running to succeed State Senator Janet Bewley in representing the 25th Senate District. After settling in northern Wisconsin twenty years ago, Westlund has been deeply involved in her community, including serving on the Ashland City Council, leading the Alliance for Sustainability to help rural communities become more self-reliant and reduce energy costs, working closely with the Bayfield Food Producers Cooperative, and helping to found a Chequamegon Bay young professionals organization. Westlund's top priorities include expanding access to quality affordable health care, protecting Wisconsin's natural resources and addressing climate change, making education more affordable, raising the minimum wage, and giving local governments more tools to succeed. Westlund is also a strong supporter of reproductive rights and believes Wisconsin should join our neighboring states in legalizing marijuana. Her opponent is former Republican legislator and real estate agent Romaine Quinn, who cast consistently anti-healthcare, anti-public education, anti-worker, and anti-middle class votes in the State Assembly and is endorsed by an extreme right wing group that wants to ban abortion without exception, even when the pregnant person's life is at risk. Westlund is the progressive choice in this race.

State Assembly

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

  • Rhinelander city council president Eileen Daniel is running to represent Vilas and Oneida counties in the State Assembly. Recognizing that many significant issues are going to come down to the state level, Daniel promises to listen to all of her constitituents and make sure the people of the northwoods are heard in the legislature. Daniel strongly supports women's reproductive rights and believes everyone deserves good healthcare, which is why she supports expanding BadgerCare. Her priorities also include ensuring public schools have adequate funding, strengthening PFAS standards, promoting affordable housing, and fighting for equality. Daniel favors common sense gun safety measures like stronger background checks and red flag laws, but notes that her household owns guns, uses guns, and stores guns properly. Daniel is challenging Republican incumbent Rob Swearingen, who has cast consistent anti-public schools, anti-environment, anti-choice, and anti-democracy votes in the Assembly. Daniel is the progressive choice in this race.
