On October 15th, 2013 Governor Scott Walker decreed by Executive Order #118 a special election to be held in the 82nd Assembly District to replace Rep. Jeff Stone, whom he appointed to a position with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin. Walker set a primary date of November 19th, and a general election date of December 17th for the election. Candidates could circulate nomination papers beginning immediately. They had one week to turn them in.

Nomination papers, each with a minimum of 200 or a maximum of 400 signatures, were received from five candidates, four Republicans and a lone Democrat.

And now the race is on.

John Hermes

The 82nd District includes the cities of Greenfield and Franklin and the Village of Greendale, whose president, John M. Hermes is the candidate of the Democrats. Hermes also sits on the executive committee of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, and was director of legislative affairs for the National Air Traffic Controllers Association from 1989 to 2010, when he retired. [Hermes Campaign Website.]

However, winning a seat in this district is not an easy task for Democrats: all but four of the 38 wards in the district went for Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election. Stone had held the seat comfortably since 1988. Redistricting in 2010 made it even cozier for Republicans.

Good luck, Mr. Hermes. :thumbright:
