Current elected officials[edit]

Duey Stroebel was elected in a special election to the 20th Senate District on April 7, 2015. He had previously been a State Assemblyman from the 60th District from 2011-2015 until he gave it up in a losing effort in the Republican Primary for the 6th Congressional District in 2014, an election won by Stroebel's predecessor in the 20th Senate District, Glenn Grothman.
