Democrat Taylor wins in Madison Assembly race

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A leader of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has won a six-way Democratic primary in a Madison state Assembly race where there is no opposition in the general election.

She had 32 percent of the vote with 95 percent of precincts reporting in unofficial results from Tuesday's primary.

That means Chris Taylor will be the winner in the Aug. 9 general election, barring a write-in candidate.

Taylor currently works as public policy director for Planned Parenthood. She defeated legislative aides Bethany Ordaz and Vicky Selkowe, former Madison aldermen Andy Heidt and Fred Arnold and current Dane County Supervisor Dave de Felice.

The 48th Assembly District seat was vacant after Democrat Joe Parisi left in April after being elected as Dane County executive.
