Gays Mills nurse announces run for Wisconsin 96th Assembly District
Swiggum recently ran for 32nd Senate District in 2020 and lost in the primary to Brad Pfaff
GAYS MILLS, Wis. (WKBT) – A Gays Mills nurse declared her candidacy for Wisconsin’s 96th Assembly District Tuesday.
This will be the second campaign for Democrat Jayne Swiggum, who ran against Brad Pfaff in the 2020 Wisconsin 32nd senate district primary and lost. Swiggum says her first campaign – during which she took no campaign contributions – was a steep learning curve, but that experience set her up to be more successful this time around.
“I learned in my first state race that it is very difficult to run for office without a team of supporters and without taking any donations. This time I’m working with a team and will accept donations to my campaign,” Swiggum said.
Swiggum received 6,558 votes in the 2020 primary, losing to Pfaff by over 6,000 votes. In the 96th Assembly District, she would face Karen Mischel in the August 9 primary election. More information on Swiggum can be found at her Facebook page or on Twitter.
