State Rep. Paul Farrow will be elected on Tuesday as the next state senator.
Paul Farrow will be elected as the next state senator on Tuesday – pending any write-in candidates. Farrow is running unopposed on the Republican ticket for the 33rd Senate District. Farrow, who beat Republican Chris Kapenga in the primary election in November, will replace State Sen. Rich Zipperer after Zipperer resigned to take a top position with Gov. Scott Walker’s administration. It’s been a busy year at the polls. Farrow’s election on Tuesday will be the seventh month with an election in Waukesha in 2012. Because turnout is expected to be low, all voters in Waukesha are casting ballots at City Hall. The city is expecting to save at least $12,000 by having one central polling location for the election.

Two Waukesha County legislators – Paul Farrow and Chris Kapenga – are running for vacant seat in a special primary election on Nov. 6.

While Tuesday’s election is a Republican primary, there is no Democratic candidate, which signals for a win for whoever emerges from Tuesday’…

A special election to replace Sen. Rich Zipperer, R-Pewaukee, who left the Senate to take a top administrative position with Gov. Scott Walker’s staff, will be held Dec. 4.
