Kapenga concedes 33rd Senate to Farrow

Nov. 7, 2012

With over 75 percent reporting in, Paul Farrow has gained a slight lead at 27,449 votes over Chris Kapenga who holds 25,052 votes for the 33rd State Senate Seat. Kapenga recently called Farrow to concede the primary special election race.

In a prepared statement, Kapenga wrote that he wanted to congratulate Paul Farrow in his win and said that he looked forward to continuing his service with Farrow in the state legislature to “make Wisconsin a better place to live and work.”

“I look forward to working with Chris Kapenga and serving both the 98th and 99th Assembly Districts, during the next State Legislature session,” Farrow said. He also said that he was excited about working for better education and education reform during the next session.

A general election is still planned to take place early December and Farrow's vacant seat in the assembly seat will likely trigger a special election, possibly in spring of 2013.
