Print Article

BELOIT - Beloit challenger Brittany Keyes, running against longtime incumbent Amy Loudenbeck for state Assembly in November, raised more campaign cash than the political veteran so far this year.

Local candidates set to run for state office are reporting varying gains in campaign contributions heading into the final election push.

• Assembly District 31 (Beloit/Clinton): Republican incumbent Loudenbeck, of Clinton, was out-matched by Keyes, a Democrat, from January through June, with Keyes raising $21,774 to Loudenbeck's $18,515. But Loudenbeck still holds $55,388 in her campaign's war chest to Keyes' $16,202. Loudenbeck has served since 2010 and is seeking her fifth term but will face Keyes, a Beloit physical therapist at Beloit Memorial Hospital.

• Assembly District 45 (Beloit): Incumbent Mark Spreitzer, D-Beloit, will face Libertarian challenger Reese Wood, with Spreitzer's campaign reporting $12,234 raised from January through June 30 to Woods' $420. Spreitzer has won the seat twice since 2014. His campaign has $8,796 on-hand after total disbursements. Wood is a Beloit native and looks to campaign on a platform of economic freedom and limited government, according to his biography. Spreitzer previously served as a member of the Beloit City Council, and served as the Minority Caucus Chairperson in the 2017-18 legislative term.

• Senate District 15 (Evansville): Incumbent Janis Ringhand, D-Evansville, will run unopposed in the upcoming election and raised $10,378 from January through June, with $42,930 on-hand.

• Senate District 11 (Whitewater): Incumbent Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, will run unopposed in the upcoming election and raised $4,205 from January through June, with $20,976 on-hand.

The primary will be held August 14 and the general election will be held Nov. 6. All campaign finance data is attributed to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
