MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A third Republican has announced his candidacy to fill the soon-to-be vacated state Senate seat of Sen. Glenn Grothman who was elected to Congress.
Ralph Prescott, a member of the Calumet County Board and former supermarket operator, announced his campaign on Thursday. Prescott also ran for the state Assembly this year but lost in the GOP primary to eventual winner Jesse Kremer.
Ozaukee County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt (SHLEN’-voyt) and state Rep. Duey Stroebel both previously announced this week that they are running for Grothman’s seat.
Stroebel has been in the state Assembly since May 2011. Schlenvogt is a dairy farmer who has served on the Ozaukee County Board of Supervisors for seven years.
Gov. Scott Walker will call a special election once Grothman officially resigns.
