No new candidates join fall election races


You will not find any new faces running for state and federal office to represent Door and Kewaunee counties according to documents from the Wisconsin Elections Commission.


Nobody from an opposing party has registered yet to run against First District Assembly Rep. Joel Kitchens of Sturgeon Bay, but fellow Republican Milt Swagel of Kewaunee is signed up. Nobody so far is challenging First District State Senator Andre Jacque, a Republican from De Pere. Appleton’s Robin Kettleson (Democratic Party), Sturgeon Bay’s Jacob J. VandenPlas (Libertarian Party), and Luxemburg’s Robbie Hoffman (Environmental Party) are registered to run for the U.S. House of Representatives seat currently held by Rep. Mike Gallagher. Like what is being seen in the United State Senate race where Senator Ron Johnson (Republican) and some of the top Democrats have stated their intentions to run but have not submitted the initial forms yet, Gallagher has secured endorsements but he has not filed a campaign registration statement or declaration of candidacy yet.


None of the candidates listed above have filed their nomination papers, which are due back to the Wisconsin Elections Commission by June 1st.
