From the AP, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
MADISON – Two Republican state lawmakers resigned Friday to take jobs with Gov. Scott Walker’s administration, the latest departures from the Legislature that will force the GOP to defend the seats with no incumbents on the ballot.
Sen. Frank Lasee (pictured) of De Pere and Rep. Keith Ripp of Lodi will begin working for Walker on Monday. There will be no special elections to fill the vacancies, Walker spokesman Tom Evenson said. Both seats will be filled in the regular November election.
