Special election field set for two state legislative seats

From the Wisconsin State Journal:

State Rep. Andre Jacque (pictured) defeated Alex Renard in the 1st Senate District primary, which includes the Door County peninsula. He will face Democrat Caleb Frostman in the June 12 general election.

If Jacque wins the seat, Republicans would hold a three-vote margin in the Senate should it convene again to vote this year. If Frostman wins, the margin would be down to two votes. The Legislature is not scheduled to reconvene until next year.

Jon Plumer, a karate school owner who received hefty financial backing from Assembly Republicans, bested three other Republican contenders — Colleen Locke-Murphy, Darren Schroeder and Spencer Zimmerman. He faces Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd on June 12 for a south-central Wisconsin Assembly seat that includes part of Dane County.
