Jonathan Brostoff, one of four Democratic candidates vying to replace State Rep. Jon Richards, won the Aug. 12 primary and is likely to become our new Assembly representative in Madison.
Brostoff is expected to be easily elected in the Nov. 4 general election as the only opponent on the ballot will be Joe Klein of the independent Pirate Party of Wisconsin.
Richards, who has served in the Assembly since 1998, did not seek re-election ran so he could run for state attorney general. Jefferson County D.A. Susan Happ defeated Richards and another candidate in that primary.
Brostoff, who spoke at an HWTN earlier this year, defeated attorney Dan Adams, Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic and attorney Sara Geenen. He is District Director for Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson. Previously, he worked as a legislative aide to Milwaukee County Supervisor Jason Haas.
