There are two Democratic candidates campaigning to represent Wisconsin’s 49th Assembly District in a race that may flip the seat. The district is in the southwest corner of the state and encompasses all of Grant County, the western half of Richland County, a corner of southwest Lafayette County, and the municipalities on the western boundary of Iowa (see the full map here).
Today on the show, we meet both these candidates. First, we talk to Shaun Murphy-Lopez, followed by write-in candidate Barret Galauner.
Wisconsin is holding its partisan primary election on Tuesday, August 11. The general and presidential election will be held on Tuesday, November 3. More information from the Wisconsin Elections Commission here.
