GREENDALE, WI — Last week, the country’s top state legislative election forecaster CNalysis moved Wisconsin’s 82nd District from “Safe Republican” to “Likely Republican,” a shift favoring Democratic challenger Jacob Malinowski.

The forecast moved 69 seats, including three in Wisconsin. The 82nd District is one of 15 competitive races in the state, most of which would be Democratic gains.

Jacob’s campaign manager Nick Famularo noted, “Experts are starting to notice our momentum, and we’re excited to continue working hard to win in November. Despite its partisan gerrymander, the 82nd District is one of the most competitive seats in Wisconsin this year.”

“The people of this community don’t vote based on political party – they look for candidates who put in the work and offer real ideas. Voters haven’t had a real choice in seven years, and Jacob is running because folks deserve a leader who is up for the challenges of 2020 and beyond.”

On Tuesday, more votes were cast in the Democratic Assembly Primary than in the Republican Assembly Primary. The 82nd District includes the southwest Milwaukee suburbs of Franklin, Greendale, and Greenfield.
