Rulka launches write-in campaign for Assembly
By City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – A Marshfield woman is launching a write-in campaign for state assembly. Kathleen Rulka is asking voters in the 69th Assembly District to write her in on Nov. 6.
“Part of my motivation is because people kept telling me that they were writing me into the ballot, and because they were writing me into the ballot, I realized that I needed to register so that those votes would be counted,” Rulka said. “The big hurrah is that people are really happy that the incumbent is not running unopposed, because they really feel that for the democratic process to be upheld that we need to provide choices for people so that they can choose one candidate or the other.”
Rulka had announced her intentions to run for state assembly earlier this year, but withdrew from the race to assist her husband Brian Ewert in his campaign for the 7th Congressional District.
Rulka is now officially registered with the Wisconsin Elections Commission as a write-in candidate.
Rulka says she is using social media and her website to get the message out that she is launching the write-in candidacy. She’s also putting up yard signs and going door-to-door.

The only name voters in the 69th Assembly District will see on the ballot on Election Day is that of Republican incumbent Bob Kulp of Stratford.
