Newcomer to seek re-election


Republican Scott Newcomer of Delafield plans to seek re-election for his 33rd Assembly District seat.

"My focus right now is on the fall legislative session that begins this week," Newcomer said. "I will continue to find ways to work with the Democrats to get reasonable legislation passed, while serving in the minority. After the session next year, I will focus on campaigning on my accomplishments in the Assembly and work with my colleagues to make sure we regain a Republican majority in the Assembly."

Newcomer has held the 33rd District Assembly seat since a special election in December 2005. He was re-elected in 2006 and again in 2008.

Joe Deklotz, also of Delafield, recently announced his name would be on the ballot for the district’s seat. The primary election is still a year away on Sept. 14, 2010.

Deklotz, a 25-year-resident and real-estate broker in Lake Country, said on his campaign Web site that he’s become very disappointed in the performance of the state government, specifically as it relates to fiscal and social issues.

"Their actions have resulted in larger government, higher taxes, and a number of social programs that many of us do not agree with," Deklotz said. "All of this has encouraged a number of very good businesses and citizens to leave the state. It’s time to get serious, this can not continue."

Newcomer said the upcoming session is an important one for the Republican party.

"This is an important session for Republicans as we continue to be the voice of reason while we are in the minority," Newcomer said. "If the Democrats plan to continue their assault on business and families in Wisconsin, we must stand up and fight for our state."
