Walworth County GOP endorses Necci for DA
Necci, the only announced candidate for the post, lives in Delavan. In a news release, Necci said he is the first candidate for Walworth County district attorney to be endorsed by the county Republican Party in 25 years.
A former potential opponent, Rock County Assistant District Attorney Richard Sullivan, announced Thursday he would not be a candidate. Sullivan lives in Walworth.
Several Walworth County officials have endorsed Necci including Assembly Rep. Tyler August, Delavan Mayor Mel Nieuwenhuis, village of Walworth Chief of Police Christ Severt and Genoa city Chief of Police John Mara.
