Wisconsin Restaurant Association Endorsement

I am honored that endorsements keep coming in for my candidacy to be your Representative for District 29! I believe the WI Restaurant Association believes in me due to my experiences as an owner of a food and salad dressing manufacturer a few years ago, along with my other small business background, and my goal of working for economic growth right here in the 29th District.

Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation Backs Stafsholt


Earlier today, Rob Stafsholt, Republican candidate for the 29th Assembly District, was formally endorsed by the Volunteers for Agriculture-PAC, the political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.

Agriculture in Wisconsin is an $88.3 billion industry annually. It contributes 354,000 jobs to Wisconsin’s economy – that equals 10% of Wisconsin’s total employment. According to the Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s website, there are more than 77,000 farms in Wisconsin.

Rob operates one of those farms. He is a fourth-generation farmer who is proud to continue the agricultural legacy of western Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s endorsement is yet another reason why Rob is the correct choice for the 29th Assembly District this November.

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.
