Kleefisch keeps seat in 38th; challenger said he can 'hold head up high'

Nov. 6, 2012

Republican incumbent Joel Kleefisch will serve another term in the 38th Assembly District as he beat Democratic challenger Scott Michalak Tuesday night.

The district spans three counties - Jefferson, Dane and Waukesha - and the Oconomowoc resident incumbent Kleefisch saw decent competition from Michalak in some areas.

In Waukesha County, Kleefisch earned 8,085 votes and Michalak, 2,977, Dane, Kleefisch 2,258, Michalak, 3,840; and in Jefferson, Kleefisch, 3,565, Michalak, 3,385 (with 73 percent reporting as of 10 p.m.).

Michalak said he can hold his head up high after working hard to campaign. He said he wore out three pairs of shoes and knocked on more than 20,000 doors throughout the district.
