In a post on Friday, April 3, announcing Nate Zimdars’ decision to run for the 41st State Assembly District post being vacated by Republican Joan Ballweg, we wrote that the only Republican officially running for the seat was Alex Dallman.
That was wrong. Tate Barber is also seeking the Assembly seat. Barber, like Zimdars, from Ripon, is currently a student at St. Norbert College, in Depere. He will be starting his third year at the school in the fall. Barber announced his candidacy on March 9,
With two announced Republicans running for the seat, there will be a partisan primary election on Aug. 11, with the winner advancing to face Zimdars, who is the only announced Democrat seeking to represent the 41st Assembly District in Madison.
With a June 1, 2020, deadline for candidates to file nomination papers, it is possible other candidates will surface.
Barber has a website: https://www.tateforwisconsin.com/ where you can find more information on his candidacy.
