Democratic Field for US Senate Seat Grows to 8


The field of Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican Sen. Ron Johnson continues to grow, with a Milwaukee attorney a former candidate for the state Legislature joining the race.

Johnson has not said whether he will seek a third term.

The most recent candidates to file paperwork to run are Milwaukee attorney Peter Peckarsky and Adam Murphy, an information technology business owner from Franklin.

Peckarsky ran to be the Democratic National Committee chairman in 2017 but dropped out.

Murphy lost to Julian Bradley in the 2020 state Senate race for a district in southeast Wisconsin.
