LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – A first-time candidate for state office, Republican Albert Rohland looks to defeat Steve Doyle in the race for the 94th Assembly.

The two candidates met Tuesday, October 23, for a televised debate on the issues that matter to voters in the 94th District.

Topics covered a wide range of issues including education funding, dealing with failing roads, to their positions on the legalization of marijuana.

Doyle, running as a Democrat, has served in as representative since 2011. He currently sits on several legislative committees including the Ways and Means and the Speaker’s Task Force on Foster Care.

Rohland, who doesn’t live in the district, works as a machine operator at Great Lakes Cheese Company. He’s also served in the U.S. Air Force according to his campaign website.

State law says a candidate for state office doesn’t have to live in the district in order to run. If elected, the candidate must move into the district at least 10 days prior to taking the oath of office.
