Vos Will Not Run for Congress

By John Forester | April 13, 2018

From WisPolitics.com … 

— Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he’s passing on a bid for the 1st CD following House Speaker Paul Ryan’s retirement announcement earlier this week. 

Vos, R-Rochester, said in a statement this morning he’ll instead seek re-election to the Assembly and “continue to focus on maintaining the strong, historic majority” in that chamber.

“While I know that our nation’s capital desperately needs more conservative reformers from Wisconsin, Michelle and I have decided that we can do more good continuing to push state-based conservative reforms,” he said.

Other possible GOP candidates include: state Sen. Dave Craig, a former aide to Ryan; UW Regent Bryan Steil, the general counsel at a plastic film manufacturing firm; state Rep. Samantha Kerkman, of Salem; and former Racine County Exec. Jim Ladwig, who now works at SC Johnson as the director of Global Community Affairs.

Declared Dems are ironworker Randy Bryce and long-time school teacher Cathy Myers.
