— State Rep. Stephen Nass, R-Whitewater, announced his bid for re-election Friday, saying he’ll continue to fight “government spending on liberal policies.”

In a press release, Nass said he would focus on creating a climate suitable for private sector growth if elected to a tenth term.


“I am not afraid to take on the bureaucracy, powerful special interests and political insiders of both parties. These are the people leading our state down the road of fiscal disaster and destroying the future prosperity of our children,” Nass said in a statement.


Nass has been one of the Assembly’s most fiscally conservative representatives, having voted against the last three Assembly versions of the state budget, including one passed by a Republican-controlled Assembly.


Nass said he’d use his next term to do much of the same.


“We can’t fix our economy by having government spend more on government. However, the liberals under the Capitol Dome (some in both parties) won’t stop until the taxpayers of this state grab the pitchforks and take back their state government this November,” Nass said in a statement.


Nass currently has two declared challengers: Jefferson County Supervisor Craig Peterson, R-Sullivan, and Leroy Watson, a Libertarian from Oconomowoc.
