Duchow wins primary for vacant Wisconsin Assembly seat

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Town of Delafield supervisor has defeated three other Republican challengers in the race for a vacancy in the Wisconsin state Assembly.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Cindi Duchow won Tuesday's primary election. Her victory means she's all but certain to take the 99th Assembly District seat representing conservative Waukesha County, as no Democrats filed to run. The general election is Sept. 29.

The other candidates were businessman Dave Westlake of Hartland, limousine chauffeur Spencer Zimmerman of Delafield and insurance agent Scott Owens of the Town of Genesee.

Duchow, of Pewaukee, has won endorsements from several high-profile Republicans, including former Gov. Tommy Thompson.

The seat is open after Chris Kapenga was elected to the state Senate in a July special election.
