Another change in Democratic leadership in the Wisconsin Legislature. State Senator Janet Bewley (D-Mason) announced on Tuesday that she won’t seek reelection this November in her northwestern Wisconsin district.
Bewley served four years in the state Assembly before being elected to the Senate in 2014. She succeeded Democrat Bob Jauch, who was first elected to the seat in 1987. Her Democratic colleagues elected Bewley as Minority Leader in 2017.
In the Assembly, Minority Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) recently announced he’s not seeking reelection, with Democrats in that chamber electing Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) as their new leader.
