State Senator Mary Felzkowski announces reelection bid

For the Tomahawk Leader

MADISON – State Senator Mary Felzkowski (R-Tomahawk) today announced that she will run for reelection in Wisconsin’s 12th Senate District in November.

The 12th Senate District, under new legislative maps, covers all of Florence, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Marinette, Oneida and Vilas Counties, as well as parts of Oconto, Marathon and Shawano Counties.


Felzkowski is seeking a four-year term that would begin in Jan. 2025 and run through 2028.

A Tuesday, March 12 release from Felzkowski’s office said she has “continued to produce positive results” for the district “despite the struggles that come with serving alongside a Democrat governor.”

“I’ve been extremely honored to have the opportunity to represent the people of northern Wisconsin in Madison, and I hope to earn your vote as we continue to fight for lower taxes, smaller government, less burdensome regulations and strong conservative values,” Felzkowski stated.

“Throughout the last four years, Senator Felzkowski had 26 bills signed into law by the Governor – with a handful more still awaiting his signature,” the release said. “Her focus in the Legislature has been on fixing our broken healthcare system – increasing access and decreasing costs – without sacrificing quality.”

“Working with a Democrat governor isn’t ideal by any means, but we aren’t sent to Madison to sit back and do nothing for four years while we wait for a Republican to take over the East Wing,” Felzkowski said. “I’m proud of the successes I’ve achieved during my time in office so far, and I look forward to more accomplishments in the future. The next two election cycles will be crucial for our country and state. We must come together and work towards a collective goal of electing Republicans up and down the ballot – including the President and U.S. Senate in 2024, and then Governor in 2026. We need leaders in Madison who will stand strong for conservative principles and defend our constitutional rights. I look forward to continuing to fight on behalf of the Northwoods, and I hope you’ll entrust me in taking on that role once again in 2025.”

Felzkowski was elected to the State Assembly in 2012, serving four two-year terms, including two sessions as a member of the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee (JFC) and one session as the Assistant Majority Leader.

In 2020, Felzkowski was elected to the State Senate, where she currently serves on the JFC.
