While the special election for the Wisconsin 1st Senate District seat between Andre Jacque and Caleb Frostman is still nearly a week away, a Republican candidate has submitted paperwork for the general election in November. Bill Nauta, commander of the Washington Island American Legion Post 402, will force a primary election with Jacque on August 14th, with the winner squaring off against Frostman in November for the full term seat. Jacque says he was ready to potentially have to win four elections in a short time span.
Republican Joel Kitchens will not run unopposed in the 1st Assembly district race, as independent Roberta Thelen also filed paperwork near the deadline late last week. Kitchens is seeking his third term.
