State Senator Dale Schultz has decided
not to seek reelection this year. We heard
this week from the veteran lawmaker that
2014 will be his last year as the State Senator
from southwest Wisconsin.
But we also learned that Schultz will not
endorse fellow G O P Howard Marklein
to replace him, if Marklein is nominated.
The reason. According to Schultz when
Marklein decided to “primary” him,
Marklein said it was because of the Senator’s
vote against Act-10, and his opposition to
legislation on mining in Wisconsin.
Schultz also says he will not endorse
any Democrat candidate that would be
nominated for the 17th Senate District seat.
As for Marklein, after hearing that
Senator Schultz won’t seek reelection,
he applauded the Senator on his successful
career in the State Senate. Marklein says
Schultz will be missed by his colleagues on both
sides of the aisle in the Wisconsin Legislature.
