OSHKOSH, WI - Winnebago County Executive and State Senate Candidate Mark Harris said today that he will run for the State Senate in defiance of the passage of Senate Bill 707 Tuesday. SB 707 was introduced by Republican Party leaders to block Harris, a Democratic candidate in the 18th Senate District, from serving in the Legislature.

"This bill is a sign of the misplaced priorities of Republican leaders," said Harris. "I'm running for State Senate because Wisconsin deserves better. Hardworking families that I hear from say they want leaders who will work together and focus on creating jobs, investing in our public schools, public universities, and infrastructure."

"Rather than strengthening our communities and growing our middle class, Republicans in Madison continue to focus on retaining political power," Harris said. "I have faith that voters will see these tactics for what they are and will support my effort to restore commonsense to the State Capitol."

Mark Harris is a Democratic candidate for the open 18th Senate District that includes parts of Fond du Lac, Winnebago, and Dodge Counties.

Harris currently serves as Winnebago County Executive and lives in Oshkosh with his wife Susan. To learn more about his candidacy, please visit
