Republican Duchow Enters 99th AD Race

A date for the special election to fill Kapenga's seat has not yet been announced. That election will likely take place this fall. The Assembly seat covers municipalities such as Chenequa, Hartland, Nashotah, Oconomowoc Lake, Delafield, Wales, Dousman, Ottawa and North Prairie.

Duchow joins Dave Westlake of Delafield in the race. Westlake announced his candidacy July 22. Westlake, a small-business owner and West Point graduate, isn't new to elections. He ran in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate in 2010 — a seat Ron Johnson won.
