Republican Ryan Huebsch today announced he’ll run for the 94th AD, formerly held by his father and ex-Assembly speaker, Mike Huebsch.
Rep. Steve Doyle, D-Onalaska, currently holds the seat. Doyle was first elected in a 2011 special election when former Rep. Mike Huebsch resigned to serve as Department of Administration secretary under former Gov. Scott Walker. Mike Huebsch represented the 94th AD from 1995-2011 and served as Assembly speaker from 2007-2008.
Ryan Huebsch spent three years as a legislative aide to Scott Fitzgerald during the Juneau Republican’s time as state Senate majority leader and to Sen. Eric Wimberger, R-Green Bay. He said during his time working at the state Capitol, he saw how western Wisconsin communities and the Coulee region’s point of view are “forgotten when critical decisions are being made.”
Ryan Huebsch said in a release that partisan disputes have kept politicians from working together.
“From our unaffordable economy, to our childrens’ education, from health care for our families to the way our elections are run, partisan arguing has replaced working together,” Huebsch said. “Spending more of our tax money seems to be the only solution offered. We deserve and expect better. I intend to bring fresh energy and common-sense ideas from Western Wisconsin to Madison.”
Ryan Huebsch, raised in West Salem, currently resides in Onalaska. He graduated from UW-La Crosse in 2018. He is 26 years old.
