Ringhand Announces Run For State Senate

45th Assembly District Representative Janis Ringhand says she plans to run for the 15th Senate District.

That seat is currently held State Senator Tim Cullen of Janesville who announced early last month that he would not seek re-election.

Ringhand resigned her post as Secretary for the Assembly Democratic Caucus, though she'll continue to serve in the State Assembly through the end of her term.

Ringhand formerly served as an Alderwoman and eventually Mayor of her home City of Evansville.

43rd Assembly District Representative Andy Jorgensen has announced that he's considering a run for the seat as well.
