Representative, District 35

State Representative

  • Lifelong District 35 resident Tyler Ruprecht decided to run for Assembly because he did not see anyone else stepping up to provide the leadership he felt was necessary for the 35th AD. On healthcare, Ruprecht stands for expanding BadgerCare and creating a BadgerCare public option while eliminating deductibles and improving rural hospitals. He also believes in raising the minimum wage, ending CAFO subsidies, legalizing marijuana, nonpartisan redistricting, expanding broadband access, and promoting clean water and clean energy. His opponent, Calvin Callahan, is opposed to red-flag gun violence prevention laws, is anti-choice, and believes that the free market will solve Wisconsin's healthcare problems. Ruprecht is the progressive choice in this race.

Representative, District 87

State Representative

  • Richard Pulcher is the Democratic candidate for the 87th District. Pulcher's biography includes a varied work history; he is recently retired from the Clark County Health Care Center and his 2020 candidacy is endorsed by Wisconsin AFL-CIO. Pulcher supports reforming the drawing of legislative districts and getting big money out of politics. Assemblyman James Edming supported overturning of the Safer at Home order, and is endorsed by conservative PAC Wisconsin Family Action, the NRA, and extreme anti-choice group Wisconsin Right to Life. He has minimized the COVID-19 crisis and was also the author of a bill that allowed children of any age to hunt while supervised and allowing the child to carry their own gun. There is no verifiably progressive candidate in this race.
