Having to win potentially four elections in seven months to receive a full-term as state Senator is not changing the focus of Assembly member and Senate District 1 candidate Andre Jacque. Announcing his candidacy in January, Jacque was wrapping up his fourth term as an Assembly member representing District 2 while waiting to see what the fate of a special election would be. Following Governor Scott Walker’s announcement Thursday to host the special elections, Jacque says he has already been in the community campaigning for the vacant seat.
Jacque will face Alex Renard in a primary battle on May 15 before a potential special election against Democratic candidate Caleb Frostman on June 12.
