Gov. Scott Walker Calls Special Election To Replace State Rep. Bob Gannon.  (Wisconsin Public Radio, 11/1/2017)
At age 58.  Gannon died of natural causes. He was in his second term having first been elected in 2014.
Pat Strachota was first elected to the WI Assembly in 2004.

Wednesday, November 1.   Candidates may begin circulating nomination papers.
Tuesday, November 21.  Deadline to file.
Tuesday, November 19.  Primary election.  (A distinct possibility)
Tuesday, January 9.  Special election.  (Winner of primary is likely to run unopposed.)

I have to admit that I'll miss all of Bob's gasket-blowin' episodes.

Thank you, Bob, for keeping me engaged.
