As the ballot counting for the presidential race continued through the night, two Republicans representing Kewaunee County were re-elected in the fall election that concluded with in-person voting on Tuesday (Nov. 3).
U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Green Bay, defeated Appleton Democratic state Rep. Amanda Stuck to earn a third two-year term in the House of Representatives.
State Rep. Joel Kitchens, R-Sturgeon Bay, defeated Egg Harbor businesswoman Kimberly Delorit-Jensen and was elected to a fourth two-year term in the state Assembly.
President Donald Trump held a 4-percentage-point lead over former Vice President Joe Biden with 85% of the vote counted statewide, but vote counting was lagging in populous Democrat-leaning Milwaukee County, where election officials said it likely would be 5 a.m. or later before all the ballots were tallied. Trump won Kewaunee County by a margin of 2-1 with 7,927 votes to 3,977 for Biden.
Four county officials were unopposed for re-election; earning another term were District Attorney Andrew Naze, County Clerk Jamie Annoye, and Register of Deeds Germaine Bertrand, all Democrats, and Republican County Treasurer Michelle Dax.
