Callahan announces bid for third Assembly term

For the Tomahawk Leader

WISCONSIN – State Representative Calvin Callahan (R-Tomahawk) today announced that he will seek a third term in the Wisconsin State Assembly.

Callahan represents the state’s 35th Assembly District, which includes all of Lincoln and Langlade counties, as well as parts of Marathon, Oneida, Oconto and Shawano counties.

“Calvin came to you three years ago with a vision that there should be no reason why your kids, grandkids and great-grandchildren can’t raise their families here at home in northern Wisconsin,” a Tuesday, April 9 release from Callahan’s office said. “During this last session, Calvin has made tremendous strides toward that vision.”

Several bills Callahan authored and supported during his time in the Assembly were highlighted in the release, including legislation focused on “supporting historic tax cuts,” “advocating for business growth,” and “fighting for sporting heritage”

The release pointed to Callahan-authored legislation aimed at “banning gender-mutilating surgeries for minors and protecting the integrity of women’s sports by banning men from competing in them.”

Bills focused on “investing in childcare” and “(increasing) funding for local governments” were also noted in the release.

According to the release, Callahan has been endorsed in his bid for a third term by Congressman Tom Tiffany, State Senator Mary Felzkowski, Representative John Spiros, Marathon County Sheriff Chad Billeb, Lincoln County Sheriff Ken Schneider, Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman, Oconto County Sheriff Todd Skarban, Shawano County Sheriff George Lenzner and City of Merrill Mayor Steve Hass.

Callahan was first elected to the Assembly in 2020. Callahan previously served on the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors from 2018 to 2023 and on the Town of Wilson board from 2019 to 2021.

Currently, Callahan serves as the Chair of the Committee on Consumer Protection and is the Vice-Chair of the Committee on Insurance and the Committee on Forestry, Parks and Outdoor Recreation. He is also a member of the Committees on Corrections, Labor and Integrated Employment, Sporting Heritage, State Affairs and Ways and Means. He is also a member of the Speaker’s Task Force on Artificial Intelligence.

“Calvin will continue to demand fiscal responsibility and fight for our vision,” the release stated. “Cut taxes, stand up for our sporting heritage, fight for our fair share of funding and fight for our Northwoods values. Calvin asks for your vote in August and November because ‘together, and only together, can we continue to make the 35th Assembly District a great place to live, work and raise your families, as well as build a better Wisconsin.’”
