Rep. Andre Jacque seeks re-election to Assembly,  (Herald Times Reporter, 5/24/2012)
Andre Jacque for Assembly 2010 letter.
Meet the Majority

Won his seat handily in 2010.


The Democratic Challenger.
Larry Pruess.

The 5/24/2012 HTR article, cited above, notes that [p]otential Democratic Party challengers include Laurie Burke, Larry Pruess and Jeanette Lynn Greenwood.

Larry filed his nomination papers on 5/18/2012, but the other two potential challenges did not meet the deadline.  At that time, Larry had a campaign email but no website.

Apparently, Larry, a Two Rivers resident, doesn't have much of a web presence.  When I asked my wife, a Two Rivers native,  if she knows Larry, she replied, "No, but I do remember a Preuss family that lived on the east side."

Her spelling is different, so I tried a "Larry Preuss" search.
"Unfortunately, that page can't be found."

I give up for now.

Sorry to jump the gun here, but I gotta say Andre Jacque in a cakewalk.
