Primary VictoryI would like to take this opportunity to thank my family and friends for supporting me through the last several months of campaigning, and all of my volunteers for their tremendous efforts to help make this primary victory possible.

Thank you to all of you for the support and trust you have placed in me.

I’m also deeply grateful for the confidence the voters have placed in me with their votes today. I am looking forward to a spirited general election campaign and I will continue to run a positive campaign based on issues.

I also want to thank Vince Trudell and his family for stepping forward to run in our district. I am very happy I had the opportunity to get to know Vince and respect his genuine concern for this district’s issues, his devotion to all of our families, and our communities. Thank you Vince.

As I look forward I am excited to talk about the issues that are important to our area. I would like to use my experience as a small businessman and a farmer to grow our local economy so that we have more good paying jobs for our families, expand economic growth, reduce government over-regulation, provide the best educational opportunities for our children and grandchildren, and reduce taxes.

Rob Discusses Employer’s Search for Skilled Workers at Glass Plant

I was able to tour the Cardinal Glass plant in Menomonie, with plant manager Wayne McAtee. It was a great tour and I learned a lot about how glass is made. The hottest part of their oven is 1600 degrees Celsius!!


But perhaps the most important thing I learned, as a possible Representative, came from good talks in Wayne’s office. What I learned is that employers like Cardinal are having a hard time getting good workers to fill their job openings. glass2

As a Representative I would work on this issue. We always try to increase the number of jobs available to people in our area, but I think we need to spend some time making sure we have the good workers that employers are looking for to fill those jobs too.


Thanks for your time and open conversations with me about finding quality employees Wayne!

Meeting at UW-Stout in Menomonie with Chancellor Bob Meyer

I had the opportunity to meet with Bob Meyer in his office today. Bob is the Chancellor at UW-Stout in Menomonie. uw1

It was a great discussion about what a chancellor and a UW campus wants from their Representatives in WI and I look forward to working closely with Chancellor Meyer moving forward if I get elected. Bob has a total of almost 30 years of his life at UW-Stout along with some time working with WITC so he also understands the needs of the two year institutions as well. uw3

It was great to get his take on a lot of education topics. I was amazed that Stout has a 97.3% employment (or continued higher education) rate for their graduates. Stout strives to continue that number by offering perhaps fewer majors than other universities, but they are very specialized. Bob and UW-Stout works very closely with employers to make sure their courses evolve with the needs of the people who will potentially be hiring the grads….it’s a very good system

I then got a tour of the campus from Don Steffen which included the much talked about Stout FAB Lab. I was very surprised to learn how much the general public and local businesses use the lab for various projects as well……it really is a community FAB Lab.uw2



Thank you to Bob Meyer and Don Steffen for your time today.

Former Assembly Candidate Jim Palmer Endorses Rob Stafsholt

Palmer throws support behind Rob Stafsholt

Candidate for State Assembly Jim Palmer has announced that he is suspending his campaign for State Assembly District 29 and putting his support behind Rob Stafsholt’s campaign.

Jim Palmer Endorsement

Palmer, a conservative Republican who is married with five children said he was pulling out of the race in order to spend more time with his family due to recent health concerns that recently arose with his two youngest kids.

Palmer said that after some thought and discussion with his wife, putting family first is more important at this point in their lives than continuing a bid for elected office.

“Anyone that knows me knows that my family is crucially important to me,” Palmer said.

“That’s why, after much deliberation, I have decided to put the needs of my wife and five children before my desire to serve the people of the 29th Assembly District.”

“I’m grateful for the support I have received in this race and I am honored to have met so many wonderful people throughout our district. I will continue to fight for Christian values, smaller government, the Second Amendment, taxpayers and of course, our veterans, by joining Rob Stafsholt’s campaign team.”

Palmer announced his support and endorsement of candidate Stafsholt, who he said shares his views on the fact that veterans need to be respected and treated properly, our gun rights, traditional values and keeping government small and free from waste, fraud and abuse.

“While I will no longer be a candidate in this election, I am proud to throw my support behind another true conservative, a Constitutionalist like myself, a man of integrity who will fight for the issues I believe in,” Palmer said. “In my discussions with Rob I have found he shares my concern not only for Veterans issues, but many of the other issues I ran on, and I know he will carry that fight to Madison with honor and dignity for all of us.”
