Rep. Stafsholt released a statement following his Primary Election victory:
“It was a lively Primary Election, and I’m both humbled and encouraged to have this strong show of support from voters across the district. This seat is Republicans’ best pick-up opportunity in November, and I’m committed to leading the charge to make that victory happen.
“As I’ve met with voters across the district over the last several months, one thing is clear: Patty Schachtner represents Madison’s agenda, not Northwest Wisconsin’s interests, and she has consistently failed to lead. We must return a proven conservative leader to the Senate who knows how to get things done. I’m proud of my track record of delivering results, including 15 bills signed into law, by governors of both parties, that protect our liberties and put taxpayers first. I will continue that fight in the State Senate.”
Stafsholt now faces Senator Patty Schachtner in the November 3 General Election.
