Farrow to be sworn in Dec. 14

Dec. 6, 2012

Republican state Rep. Paul Farrow of Pewaukee is tentatively scheduled to be sworn in as a state senator Dec. 14 after winning an uncontested special election this week for an open seat.

Farrow won Tuesday's election  to replace Rich Zipperer, who resigned in August to become Gov. Scott Walker's deputy chief of staff.

Farrow is able to take his seat in the 33rd State Senate District earlier than others elected in the regular November election because he was chosen in a special election to fill a vacancy.

With Farrow's win, Republicans will hold an 18-15 majority in the Senate starting in January.

Farrow was first elected to the state Assembly in 2010.
