On Tuesday night, Rep. Gae Magnafici (R-Dresser) won her election for State Assembly in the 28th District over Kim Butler (D-Milltown). 

Magnafici released the following statement yesterday: 

"Thank you so much to the voters of the 28th District for once again electing me and trusting me to represent them in Madison. I am forever grateful for the people of Burnett, Polk and St. Croix counties who have helped me get to this spot and have had my back for the past few years. This seat belongs to them and I can't wait to get back to Madison to represent their interests.

"I was born and raised in Polk County and this is where I will always call home. The residents of this area expect a representative who will for fight their values and will always vote with their best interests in mind. That is what I have done over the past two years and that is what I will do over the next two. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on healthcare and substance abuse issues. I also am eager to get to work to get Wisconsin's economy back on track and getting people back to work."
