Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(WQOW) – The 68th Assembly District covers parts of Eau Claire, Chippewa, Clark, Jackson and Trempealeau Counties.

The seat was wide open because Kathy Bernier chose to run for Senate.

Now, a newcomer will represent the district.

Republican Jesse James defeated Wendy Sue Johnson to take the spot.

James has 17 years in law enforcement and is currently the Altoona Police Chief. He told News 18 he will resign from that position when he takes office.
