2022-2023 Election Coverage by Jay Selthofner

AD 12 Will Williford go unchallenged in the primary

Assembly District 12 is a heavily Democrat district. Without a primary challenger, it seems whoever the Democrat will be, the job is theirs. The Incumbent LaKeshia Myers (D-Milwaukee) has announced plans to run in a special election for the vacant 4th Senate District, though the election hasn’t been called yet.

Current state law requires incumbents who do not plan to seek re-election to file a declaration with the Wisconsin Elections Commission that formally affirms that they will not seek re-election two weeks before the deadline to file nomination papers. The deadline for 2024 is May 24th.

Greg Canady (R – Milwaukee)

Canady ran in 2022 received 21% of the vote and lost against Incumbent Myers (D)

The candidate failed to respond to any request for his stance on marijuana and did not complete a candidate questionnaire.

Brandon Williford (D – Milwaukee)

A lifelong Milwaukee resident, Brandon Williford is a MPS graduate and a Healthcare Policy Organizer for Citizen Action of Wisconsin. He founded a nonprofit to help improve the academic and social conditions of minority students and became the youngest ever board member of the Milwaukee Turners.

Williford just came of run for Milwaukee County Supervisor District 18 and is fresh to the campaign trail for state assembly.

We are awaiting his response to his stance on cannabis reform for Wisconsin. We will report back once this race is final and let you know if a potential primary challenger emerges.
