Rep. Kitchens optimistic for future after fifth victory

Even though it was not the night many Republicans wanted, Rep. Joel Kitchens says there are plenty of things to be happy about after Tuesday’s election. With some races yet to be decided, it appears Republicans will retake the House of Representatives and could do the same if Herschel Walker can win his run-off election against Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock. Despite that, it was not the “Red Wave” many pundits predicted. Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature could not capture enough seats to make future bills veto-proof after Governor Tony Evers reclaimed his seat along with Attorney General Josh Kaul and potentially Secretary of State Doug La Follette. Rep. Kitchens appreciated that he and his Democratic challenger Roberta Thelen were able to focus on the issues during their campaign that eventually went his way by a 62.5 percent-37.5 percent margin. He is hopeful he and his Republican colleagues can have a much better relationship with the Governor than they did the previous four years.

Kitchens and other winners of the state offices will be inaugurated on January 3rd, 2023.
