March your calendar for the August 14th primary. There are several competitive races this year including partisan primaries that will determine who advances after August 14th. Your vote is important. Most races are expected to get very nasty.
US Senate Race:
Whoever wins the Republican primary will take on incumbent Senator Tammy Baldwin this fall.
: There are three serious contenders out of an eight-way primary for the democratic candidates looking to take on Governor Walker in the fall. Thus far, the only candidate with statewide name recognition is Department of Public Instruction Superintendent Tony Evers. But, every candidate has a following.
Every vote will be crucial.
State Senate and Assembly Races:
Three State Senate races are in play. And multiple Assembly races have unexpected primaries. Republican challengers are concerned their incumbents are "too moderate." These races could weaken the voices of moderate Republicans.
