  •  WI-AD-21 special election (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Sara Johann is considering running as a Democrat in the upcoming special election to replace Republican Mark Honadel in the 21st Assembly District of Wisconsin.

    Johann has run for seats in the Wisconsin legislature three times before, most recently in 2000 (losing a state senate race to Republican incumbent Alberta Darling). More recently, Johann was the organizer of the "Draft Peter Barca for Governor" movement, then floated herself as a potential Democratic gubernatorial candidate before Honadel announced his intention to resign from the Assembly.

    Normally, a race in AD-21 (Oak Creek area in Milwaukee County) would be Safe R with someone like Johann as the Democratic nominee, although I'll rate it Likely R due to the fact that it's a special election.

    I'll say one thing about Johann...she does respond to questions that people ask her over social media. After telling her via her Facebook group that I was unaware of any other Democrats that were considering running, she responded by saying that she knew several other people that were considering running, but refused to provide names.

    My parents made me a Democrat. Scott Walker made me a progressive.
