2020 Wisconsin elections: Who's running in the 82nd Assembly District?

On the surface, Ken Skowronski (R-Franklin) easily won a 3rd full term to the Assembly.  Perhaps it's telling, though that Libertarian challenger Jason Sellnow received 31.5% of the vote in 2018.  Ken turns 82 on May 31 and has yet to announce his intention to run for re-election.

It'll be a very tough nut to crack for Nenad.

Redistricting Leaves Nearly 2.5 Million Residents With No Choice in Legislative Elections.  (Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, 6/12/2018)
That’s because only one major party candidate will be on the ballot in 42 of the 116 Senate and Assembly races in November (see Table). That’s more than one-third of the races, and there are nearly 2.5 million Wisconsinites in those districts. In 37 of those races, the major party candidate faces no opposition in November. And in the other five legislative contests the major party candidate faces only third party or independent opposition.
