Assembly Speaker Vos expects more conservative house after primary election

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos expects his house to be more conservative as the result of Tuesday's primary elections.

Vos said Wednesday that the GOP candidates who were nominated believe the state's heading in the right direction -- and they supported the Act 10 public union bargaining limits that were recently upheld by the State Supreme Court.

Republicans are expected to keep the majority in the lower house, which now has a 60-39 GOP advantage.

The same cannot be said, however, in the Republican-controlled Senate -- where Democrats can regain control by taking two seats away from the GOP in November.

As for Vos, close to 9 of every 10 voters in his Racine County district preferred him to primary challenger Bryn Biemeck. Vos now faces Democrat Andy Mitchell in November.
