Stratford businessman Bob Kulp was the easy winner Tuesday in a special election to fill the vacant seat in Wisconsin's 69th Assembly district.

With 100% of the votes in and counted, the Republican got 4697.

Democratic candidate Kenneth Slezak of Neillsville came in a distant second with 1677.

Independent candidate Tim Swiggum got 607 votes.

The vote is unofficial until the election is canvassed, or officially counted in a few days.

Kulp replaces Republican Scott Suder who resigned from the job in September.

The 69th includes parts of Wood, Clark and Marathon Counties.
