From the Washington County Insider. Frankly, I didn’t think it would come this fast. Why not push it to the April ballot?
Oct. 31, 2017 – Washington Co., WI – Watch for an announcement Wednesday by Gov. Scott Walker who will reportedly call for a special election to fill the seat in Assembly Dist. 58.
The position was previously held by Rep. Bob Gannon who suffered an untimely death Oct. 3.
Gov. Walker was recently in Kohlsville for Manufacturing Day and he said, “We’ll set a time and date. Our legal counsel will tell us how quickly we can do this.”
Early word is the general election will be January 16, 2018 and if need be a primary will be Dec. 19, 2017.
