State Assembly Democratic candidate to run for Senate instead

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Democratic state Assembly candidate in southern Wisconsin has decided to run for the Senate instead.  

Pat Bomhack of Spring Green now says he'll seek his party's nomination for the Senate seat to be given up by Richland Center Republican Dale Schultz.

Bomhack was planning to run for the Assembly post given up by Spring Green Republican Howard Marklein, who's running for the Senate this fall. Marklein is the only GOP candidate so far for Schultz's seat.  

Bomhack would have a chance to run against him if he can beat former state DOT official Ernie Wittwer in a Democratic primary in August.

Bomhack was a staffer for former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold. His decision leaves farmer Dick Cates as the only Democrat running for Marklein's Assembly post.
