Election Preview: Wisconsin 10th State Assembly District
Democrat Sandy Pasch is unopposed in general election for newly drawn Assembly seat
Incumbent Democrat Sandy Pasch is facing no opposition in her bid for the 10th State Assembly District seat on the Nov. 6 ballot.
Pasch has served in the State Assembly since 2009, in the 22nd District. She is currently Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader and chair of the Milwaukee Democratic Legislative Caucus. She is a nurse.
Pasch defeated several other Democratic candidates in the primary for the 10th District seat, which was vacated by state Rep. Elizabeth Coggs, who decided to run for State Senate. Pasch ran for the 10th District after Republicans changed her old district's boundaries, making it more conservative. Pasch previously lost a heated recall battle against State Sen. Alberta Darling.
The 10th District's new boundaries came this year in the wake of redistricting prompted by population shifts in the 2010 census. The district now includes Milwaukee and Shorewood. (See map)
