Governor Scott Walker has ordered a special election to fill a vacant seat in the state Assembly.
Republican Chris Kapenga of Delafield is resigning from the chamber, after winning a special election last week for an open seat in the state Senate. That spot belonged to Republican Paul Farrow, who left the Senate to focus on his job as Waukesha County executive, which he was elected to earlier this spring.
An executive order issued on Wednesday calls for a special election to be held on September 29. Nomination papers will be due by August 4 and, if needed, there will be a primary election on September 1.
The 99th Assembly District covers portions of Republican-leaning Waukesha County.
