MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Friday is the deadline for Wisconsin legislators to announce whether or not they’ll seek re-election this fall.
As of Friday morning, 11 lawmakers who don’t plan to run for other offices had filed statements of non-candidacy with the Government Accountability Board. They included Senate Democrat Jim Holperin of Conover and 10 Assembly members.
About a dozen other Assembly members filed candidacy declarations in new districts, where they were moved by Republicans as part of last year’s re-districting process.
Candidates have until June 1st to file nomination papers. The fall partisan primaries are set for August 14th, with the general elections on November 6th.
