First District Assembly candidates Rep. Joel Kitchens and Kim Delorit Jensen know they are also running against a pandemic entering its seventh month. Back in April, Kitchens supported a bipartisan relief package that provided assistance to Wisconsinites impacted by the pandemic. Jensen had to create a plan to get through the pandemic so her restaurants could operate safely. Kitchens partly blames President Donald Trump and Governor Tony Evers for it becoming politicized.
Jensen says many business owners have had to go it alone because of a lack of leadership.
State health officials announced Sunday more than 2,600 new positive tests and seven deaths from COVID-19. Of the over 150,000 residents that have tested positive for COVID-19, approximately 80 percent of them have recovered and about 870 are currently hospitalized.
