8 / 12 Contested Races on Washington County Ballots

There are several contested races on Washington County-area ballots today. For Democrats in the county, the only contested races are for statewide office: governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and treasurer. For Republicans, there are contested statewide races for secretary of state and state treasurer. On the county level, the Republican race for Washington County Sheriff is uncontested with just Republican incumbent Dale K. Schmidt. Longtime Republican Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, whose Fifth District seat  covers Washington County and extends into southern Dodge County, has no GOP challengers in today’s primary but will face Democrat Chris Rockwood in November. Although not on the Washington County ballot, a race that will draw very close attention is among Four Republican hopefuls whom are seeking to succeed veteran Congressman Tom Petri for the sixth Congressional seat. The candidates are State Senators Glenn Grothman and Joe Liebham, Tom Denow, and Duey Stroebel. The winner will face Democrat Mark Harris in November
