Several primary races face state, county voters in August

Sheboygan County voters will face several primary choices Aug. 19 before the Nov. 8 general election.

In addition to primaries in both the Republican and Democratic parties for the U.S. Senate seat, there are Democratic primaries for the Sixth District Congressional seat and the 26th state Assembly District.

Following the primary, voters will go to the polls the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November to elect offices ranging from president of the United States to several county offices.

In the 26th Assembly District - which includes the city of Sheboygan Falls, the southern half of the city of Sheboygan and the towns of Holland, Lima, Sherman and Wilson – two candidates are running for the Democratic nomination to oppose Republican incumbent Terry Katsma of Oostburg.

The two Democrats are both from Sheboygan – Evan Braun and Rebecca Clarke.

Town of Rhine resident Nanette Bulebosh has filed to run as a Democrat in the 27th Assembly District against incumbent Republican Tyler Vorpagel of Plymouth. Both are unopposed and will square off in November.

The 27th District includes the remainder of Sheboygan County, including the city of Plymouth.

Two Democrats are vying in the August primary to run against incumbent Republican

Sixth District Rep. Glenn Grothman of Glenbeulah. The district includes all of Sheboygan County.

Sarah Lloyd of Wisconsin Dells and W. Michael Slattery of Maribel are the two Democrats seeking to run against Grothman, who is running for a second term in Congress.

In the 20th State Senate District, which includes the towns of Greenbush, Lyndon, Mitchell, Russell and Scott in Sheboygan County, incumbent Republican Duey Stroebel of Saukville is unopposed both in the primary and the general election.

Three Sheboygan County office holders – County Clerk Jon Dolson, Register of Deeds Ellen Schleicher and Treasurer Laura Henning-Lorenz – will be running unopposed in November.

Incumbent District Attorney Joe De- Cecco is not running for re-election in November. The only candidate to file for the position is Republican Joel Urmanski, an assistant in DeCecco’s office.

Incumbent U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, and his main Democratic opponent, former Sen. Russ Feingold of Middleton – who lost the seat to Johnson in 2010 – will face what likely will be token opposition in the August primary.

John Schiess of Rice Lake is challenging Johnson in the Republican primary, while Scott Harbach of Kenosha filed to run in the Democratic primary against Feingold.
