MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The newest member of the Wisconsin Senate will be sworn-in a week from Friday.
Assembly Republican Paul Farrow of Pewaukee was unopposed this week in a special election for the seat given up by Pewaukee Republican Rich Zipperer. He resigned in August to join Governor Scott Walker’s office as the deputy chief of staff.
Farrow has spent two years in the Assembly. As the result of his election, the Senate will have 18 Republicans and 15 Democrats when the new legislative session begins on January 7th.
