KRONENWETTER (WAOW) -
State Representative Jerry Petrowski (R-Marathon) will run for the 29th State Senate District seat. He made the announcement Wednesday afternoon at G3 Industries in Kronenwetter.
Former State Senator Pam Galloway (R-Wausau) resigned her position last week. Galloway had been facing a recall challenge from Assembly Representative Donna Seidel (D-Wausau). Galloway's resignation left the door open for a new Republican challenger.
The 29th Senate District seat is one of four Republican-held seats up for recall this spring.
Rep. Mary Williams (R-Medford) had also been considered a candidate. However she chose to endorse Petrowski rather than run herself.
