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.
