Nass retains 31st Assembly seat
WHITEWATER Rep. Steve Nass retained his 31st Assembly seat Tuesday night, trouncing Libertarian candidate Leroy Watson.
Nass, who has served in that role for 20 years, unofficially garnered close to 90 percent of the vote with more than half the precincts reporting. His district encompasses portions of Jefferson, Waukesha and Walworth counties.
No Democrat filed in the race, leaving Watson of Oconomowoc as Nass’ only competition. Nass beat fellow Republican Craig Peterson in September’s primary.
Watson, a former sergeant first-class with the U.S. Army and expediter with the U.S. Postal Service, ran unsuccessfully for the 38th District in 2000 and the 31st District in 2002.
Unofficial results from the Walworth County Clerk's office are HERE.
Results are only from the parts of districts within Walworth County. Many state senate and assembly districts also include areas outside of Walworth County, so results aren't complete until all counties have reported their vote totals.
