UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Two new members will be elected to the Wisconsin Assembly on November 19th.
A special election was called earlier for the 69th District seat vacated by Republican Scott Suder of Abbotsford. Yesterday, Governor Scott Walker scheduled a vote for the same day in the 21st Assembly District, where Republican Mark Honadel of South Milwaukee recently stepped down.
Candidates for both seats are now circulating nomination papers. They must be filed by the end of next Tuesday for both seats. Primaries, if needed, would take place on October 22nd.
It looks like there will be a primary for Suder's seat, where four Republicans and no Democrats are running.
No matter what happens, the G-O-P will keep its huge majority in the lower House. That edge is 58-to-39 at the moment.
