(Ramthun) ( Kremer)
Four Republicans will square off in Tuesday’s primary election for the 59th Assembly seat that is open due to the retirement of Representative Dan LeMahieu. Candidates include Bill Savage of Hartford, Ralph Prescott of Chilton, Timothy Ramthun of Campbellsport and Jesse Kremer of Kewaskum. Until a few years ago, Kremer did not have any desire to seek an elected office. Kremer says he can’t stand what’s going on in this country right now. He absolutely love what Governor Walker has started in this state and he wants to keep this conservative ball rolling. Kremer views himself as the fresh face with bold new ideas. He claims he has a blueprint for education reform in Wisconsin. Kremer said he has been putting out ideas throughout the campaign and none of the other candidates are doing that. Timothy Ramthum knows Kremer very well as both come the Kewaskum area. Ramthum has a little political experience under his belt having served on the Kewaskum School Board and serving a term as its board president. The other two candidates also bring some prior and current political experience to the campaign. The 59th district encompasses portions of Washington, Fon Du Lac, Sheboygan and Calumet Counties. With no Democrat on the ballot, the winner will be elected to the Assembly.
