Republican challenger denies Trump motivation.  (WMTV, 11/14/2016)
A state representative who challenged Jim Steineke for Assembly majority leadership says the move had nothing to do with Steineke's criticisms of Donald Trump early this year.   
Rep. Kevin Petersen of Waupaca challenged Steineke for the majority leader position Monday in Assembly Republicans' first postelection meeting. Steineke won on a vote whose tally was never announced.
