Cindi Duchow won Tuesday’s Republican primary election to represent the 99th Assembly District in Waukesha County.
Duchow received 1,341 votes in the election to defeat three other candidates. Dave Westlake, a small business owner and West Point graduate who ran for the U.S. Senate in 2010 received 1,099 votes; Scott Owens, owner of an American Family Insurance agency received 737 votes, and Spencer Zimmerman, a U.S. Air Force Veteran and driver for a limousine service received 146 votes.
Duchow, the only candidate to hold public office, is a small business owner and was twice elected as Town of Delafield Supervisor.
In a recent interview with WisPolitics.com, Duchow stated her top priority is eliminating corporate income taxes. Also in the interview, Duchow indicated she would be in favor of repealing the state’s minimum markup law. Additionally, Duchow stated she believes the Government Accountability Board and John Doe investigation process both need to be overhauled.
Duchow is almost certain to win the general election on Sep. 29, as no Democrats have filed to run, and the only potential challenge could come from a write-in candidate.
