A two-term state Senator will face the president of the Wausau School Board in May’s special election in the 7th Congressional District.

Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Minocqua) won his primary election against Jason Church on Tuesday, while Tricia Zunker (D-Wausau) easily defeated Lawrence Dale on the Democratic side.

The winner will replace former Congressman Sean Duffy, who resigned in September.

Zunker got nearly 90 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary, but she told WXPR she’s been focusing on the general election for a long time.
