According to Ballotpedia (Encyclopedia of American Politics website), Spencer Zimmerman has run for office, for 3 different parties, 10 times since 2010.  All but one of them in Wisconsin. All of them unsuccessful.   He twice ran for Congress -- U.S. house seats at opposite ends of state.  Similarly, the state Assembly and Senate races he has entered are all over the map.

Locally, Zimmerman ran for a seat on the Dane County Board of Supervisors in 2010, losing by just 42 votes. Ten years later, he lost a bid for a seat on the  Rock County Board of Supervisors.  He received 26% of the vote.   Then there's this candidate profile for Madison College Student Senator.

Zimmerman is a 1988 gradaute of McFarland (WI) High Schoool.  He served in the U.S. Air Force from 2000 to 2004 and earned an Associate degree from the Community College of the Air Force in 2003.  He's listed as having a bachelor's degree from Edgewood College in Madison (2006).

Where to next?
