You will have additional candidates to consider for the general election as nomination papers are turned in this week.
State Senator Andre Jacque was looking to run unopposed for his re-election bid while the possibility also loomed for State Rep. Joel Kitchens if he is able to get through his primary challenge against Kewaunee County Board member Milt Swagel.
According to the noon update from the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Wednesday, Roberta Thelen will once again run to represent the First Assembly District while Andrea L Gage-Michaels will try to represent the First Senate District. Thelen ran for the seat in 2018 as an Independent, losing to Kitchens in the election. She is currently serving as a Town Supervisor for Baileys Harbor. Gage-Michaels is a Green Bay-area lawyer who has run her own law firm since 2020 after three years as an attorney for Legal Action of Wisconsin.
Thelen and Gage-Michaels’ nomination papers were turned in, but were still pending review as of 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The fall partisan primary is scheduled for August 9th while the election will take place on November 8th.
