State Assembly

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

  • Navy veteran Ben Murray calls himself an independent-minded Democrat who is running for Assembly because he doesn't want rural folks to be taken for granted. Murray's top priorities include addressing PFAS contamination in our water, advocating for more support for rural areas improving rural roads and bridges, and expanding rural broadband access. Murray is challenging Republican incumbent Jeff Mursau, who signed a January 2021 letter asking then-Vice President Pence to refuse to certify the 2020 presidential election results. While some of Murray's views lean conservative, he holds more progressive views than Mursau on balance and has expressed a desire to learn more about the issues. For that reason, in this race, Murray is the more progressive choice.

  • Jane Benson is running to be a fair and honest voice for everyone in the 89th Assembly Distsrict, not just the few. A former entrepreneur, small business owner, and longtime Election Day poll worker, Benson has been particularly active in fighting for fair maps in Wisconsin. As a candidate, Benson's top four priorities are the tacking the issues she hears on the campaign trail: fighting for clean water including addressing PFAS; ensuring reliable, adequate public school funding; ensuring all Wisconsinites have full reproductive rights and the ability to chose whether or when to have a family; and expanding access to high-speed internet. Her opponent is Republican incumbent Elijah Behnke, who has consistently cast anti-choice, anti-public education, anti-environment, and anti-democracy votes and who 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. Benson is the more progressive choice in this race.
