Republican Primary Election:  Kitchens wins easily, Michels edges Kleefish

Tuesday’s decisive Partisan Primary saw the Republican races in the state run the gamut from landslide wins to tightly contested races.  In the State Assembly for District 1 race, Incumbent Joel Kitchens won convincingly by a 78 to 22 percent margin over challenger Milt Swagel. 

Tim Michels won the hotly contested race with Rebecca Kleefisch for the opportunity to face off with Governor Tony Evers in November.  Claiming 47 percent of the vote, Michels was declared the winner.

Both U.S. Senator Ron Johnson and Mike Gallagher won by over an 80 percent margin in their races to win over their challengers.
