Baldwin – Rob Stafsholt, candidate for the 29th Assembly District, was endorsed today by Representative John Murtha (R-Baldwin).  Murtha, who is not seeking re-election this fall, has spent a decade representing the people of the 29th District in Madison.  Murtha cited Stafsholt’s business experience and common-sense leadership as fitting qualities for a State Representative. He also praised Stafsholt’s tough stance on taxes, his dedication to educational excellence, his support of Second Amendment rights, and his ability to work with everyone to get the job done.

“As a successful small businessman, Rob Stafsholt knows first-hand how to balance a checkbook and create economic opportunities for our area. And as a family man, Rob is committed to doing the right thing for the educational needs of our future generations,” Murtha stated.  “I feel confident that Rob will be a strong voice for western Wisconsin and will stand up for our area against the Madison special interests.”

Rob Stafsholt is a small businessman and fourth generation farmer. He is raising his daughter just outside of New Richmond, the area where he grew up and has spent his entire life. His campaign highlights plans to reduce crime and to expand economic development opportunities for western Wisconsin.

Rep. Murtha, who will retire in January 2017, is currently one of the longest serving members of the Assembly Majority and was elected by his colleagues as Majority Caucus Chair.
