  • Pat Skogen is a retired dairy farmer and former public school teacher from Monroe.

She is challenging Republican state senator Howard Marklein, who is endorsed by an extreme right wing group that supports Wisconsin's criminal abortion ban, which prohibits abortion even in cases of rape or incest. Skogen 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.

  • The first African American female pastor at Bread of Life Church, first African American female board member for Family Advocate, and first African American female alder for the City of Platteville, Lynne Parrott is committed to breaking barriers and making connections in her community. Parrott's top priorities include protecting human rights, including making abortion safe and legal in Wisconsin, increasing access to mental health resources for our kids, increasing state-shared resources, enacting common sense gun safety measures like banning assault weapons for non-military use, and improving domestic violence policies so all Wisconsinites can be safe. However, she appears to hold some policy views that are not progressive. Parrott is challenging Republican incumbent Travel Tranel, who has consistently cast anti-choice, anti-public education, anti-environment, and anti-democracy votes. On balance, Parrott is the more progressive choice in this race.
