When Alex Renard and Andre Jacque square off in the Republican primary for the First Senate District, both say previous experiences will help them earn the seat in Madison. Tuesday will be the first of potentially four elections the two could have to battle through, following Governor Walker’s announcement of the special election for the vacant seat in late March. Renard, who has been as a conservative outsider thinks he can help solve problems facing the state.
Jaques will be relying on his experience while campaigning, as he currently serves in the Assembly representing District 2.
The winner of Tuesday’s race will face off against Caleb Frostman on June 12th for the seat. Possible primaries in August could lead to a third election, with the seat being up for grabs in the general election in November.
