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. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 …

Results are not final, but State Rep. Paul Farrow's was up by more than 2,000 votes in the special Senate primary election as of
While race results were tight for the first few hours, state Rep. Paul Farrow took a late – but large – lead in the 33rd State Senate primary election over state Rep. Chris Kapenga. While final results were not in as of 1 a.m. Wednesday, Kapenga conceded to Farrow. “It was a well-fought campaign on both sides,” Farrow said. “It was a good race.” With 76 percent of votes reporting as of 1:10 a.m., Farrow had 27,449 votes – leading by 2,397 votes – compared to Kapenga’s 25,052 votes. Results are unofficial until canvassing.

Two Waukesha County legislators – Paul Farrow and Chris Kapenga – are running for vacant seat in a special primary election on Nov. 6.
The road to Tuesday’s election has been a long partisan battle as voters will pick either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama for president. But for some in the Sussex and Waukesha area, one race will be between two Republican candidates. State reps. Paul Farrow and Chris Kapenga are running for the 33rd Senate District seat that was vacated earlier this year by former Sen. Rich Zipperer. Zipperer was appointed as the deputy chief of staff and senior counsel for Gov. Scott Walker in July. Because the election is to fill the remainder of Zipperer’s term – through 2014 – a special election will be held Dec. 4. While Tuesday’s election is a Republican primary, there is no Democratic candidate, which signals for a win for whoever emerges from Tuesday’…

Waukesha County lawmaker becomes second candidate to declare his candidacy for post to be vacated by Sen. Rich Zipperer.
A little more than a week after state Sen. Rich Zipperer announced he was resigning to join the administration of Gov. Scott Walker, state Rep. Chris Kapenga has declared that he will run for the open seat. Kapenga, a Republican from Delafield, said his experience as a lawmaker and a business owner make him the right candidate to address the key economic issues facing the state. "I feel my unique experience outside of Madison politics as a business owner and CPA will bring a solid set of skills to the Senate that will be instrumental in the upcoming session," said Kapenga, the owner and president of Integrated Time Systems in Milwaukee. "The Wisconsin State Senate needs the perspective of a conservative who signs both sides of a paycheck …
