Veteran Republican lawmaker Glen Grothman being challenged by Democrat Tanya Lohr in 20th District, which includes Port Washington and Saukville.
Incumbent Republican state Sen. Glenn Grothman is taking on West Bend teacher Tanya Lohr in the 20th State Senate District race on the Nov. 6 ballot. Grothman, 57, of West Bend, has been an outspoken supporter of conservative causes since first being elected to the state Senate in 2004. "I have established a long history of conservative, independent representation for Washington County," Grothman said.

About 100 people attended a forum Thursday with 20th District Senate candidates Glenn Grothman and Tanya Lohr; 23rd Assembly District candidates Jim Ott and Cris Rogers; and 60th State Assembly District candidates Duey Stroebel and Perry Duman.

The ads are misleading, they often lie and distort," 20th District Senate candidate Tanya Lohr, adding that people should change the way they "consume" political information, and …

Tanya Lohr, a teacher at West Bend High School who also helped lead the recall efforts against Sen. Glenn Grothman, will face off against him for the 20th District Seat.
Tanya Lohr, who has taught for 16 years at West Bend High School and is currently the chair of the Democratic Party of Washington County, has announced her candidacy for the 20th District Senate seat against incumbent Sen. Glenn Grothman. Lohr is also a recent graduate of Emerge, a leadership training program for Democratic women interested in running for public office, according to a press release from the party. She is married to fellow teacher, Andy Kougl; their family also includes 6-year-old twins, as well as Kougl's two teenage daughters. Lohr's candidacy comes on the heels of a failed recall attempt against Grothman — one that she was largely a part of organizing — as well as what has been coined a "war on women," as debates over …
