Chippewa Falls Republican goes Independent
It's been 62 years since voters elected a third-party candidate to the Wisconsin Legislature.
It looks like it will happen in November, after Rep. Jeff Wood, R-Chippewa Falls, announced Tuesday he'll run as an Independent.
No Democrat filed for the seat by the deadline and the only other candidate is Libertarian Andrew McKenzie of Chippewa Falls.
Wood, a six-year incumbent, said he had enough of the GOP because it no longer stands for lower taxes and less government.
