Sister Bay Republican Bies to run for Secretary of State

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - State Representative Garey Bies announced he is launching a campaign for Wisconsin Secretary of State.  

The Sister Bay Republican says he wants to bring a “fresh and pragmatic perspective” to the office.

Democrat Doug La Follette, who has held the office since 1982, will seek reelection and has argued he wants to see many of the duties restored to the office, after they were gradually taken away in recent years.

A proposed constitutional amendment that would have done away with the office entirely was dropped this session...however lawmakers have indicated they will continue to pursue the issue in the future.
