Monroe County voters will have just one contested courthouse race this year.

Incumbent District Attorney Kevin Croninger of Sparta will be challenged by Aaron Lueck of Tomah in the Aug. 9 Republican primary. Croninger was appointed by Gov. Scott Walker to fill the vacancy created by the death of Dan Cary and is seeking his first four-year term. Lueck also applied to fill the vacancy.

Three other incumbents − clerk Shelley Bohl, treasurer Annette Erickson and Register of Deeds Deb Brandt − all Sparta Republicans, are running for re-election unopposed.

No Democrats filed to run. The general election is Nov. 8.
