WISCONSIN — Robin Vos (R) has been named the projected winner of the 63rd assembly district seat, a seat he has held since 2005.
Vos was the incumbent in this year's election, running against Joel Jacobson. Vos earned 58 percent of the vote, compared to Jacobson's 42 percent.
Vos currently serves as the Speaker of Wisconsin's Assembly, a position he has had since 2013. He has also chaired several committees, including the Joint Finance Committee.
“I want to thank the voters of Racine County for their continued confidence and for ignoring the million dollar smear campaign that my opponent and special interest groups waged against me," Vos said in a statement Tuesday night. “I’m honored to be the voice for my friends and neighbors once again in the state Assembly. I promise to continue to deliver on a strong conservative agenda that focuses on limited government, lower taxes, better health care and excellent schools.”
Prior to his time with the Wisconsin State Assembly, Vos served on the Racine County Board and the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents.
