Wisconsin state Rep. Lee Nerison will have some competition for his job this fall.
Crawford County Board Chairman Pete Flesch said he’s planning to run for the 96th Assembly seat, challenging the five-term incumbent Republican.
Flesch, who plans a formal campaign announcement Wednesday near his home in rural Soldier’s Grove, said he will run as a Democrat and doesn’t expect a primary challenger.
Flesch, 56, is a recently retired dairy farmer, as is Nerison. Flesch was first elected to the Crawford County board of supervisors in 2002 and has served as chairman since 2010.
Nerison, 61, was Vernon County Board chairman before being elected to the Assembly in 2004.
