BREAKING: Bob Donovan Will Run For State Assembly


Former Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan is running for the 84th State Assembly district.

Donovan told WRN Saturday morning that he is officially announcing his candidacy Monday.

Donovan was defeated by Cavalier Johnson earlier this month in a run for Milwaukee Mayor.

The current 84th State assembly Representative, Mike Kuglitsch of New Berlin, announced in February that he won’t seek reelection this fall. Kuglitsch has represented the district since 2011.

The district has trended solidly Republican for the last 20 years. Due to new legislative maps, New Berlin is no longer in the district. The new district boundaries include Greenfield, Hales Corners, and several blocks of the southwest corner of the city of Milwaukee.
