Former Speaker of the Assembly Sheridan running for Senate seat

Posted: Updated:
JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Former Democratic Speaker of the Assembly Mike Sheridan is running for a state Senate seat.

Sheridan announced his candidacy in Janesville on Sunday. He'll run for the 15th Senate District seat which will be open in November when Senator Tim Cullen steps down.

Sheridan represented the 44th assembly district from 2005 to 2010. Sheridan says his top priorities are to improve area roads and highways and create more jobs.

"I found ways to reach across party lines and get things done, and that's the style of leadership we need here in Madison," says Sheridan. "That's what I'm going to do when I get back to Madison is to try and work hard to get things done so we can support our families and our friends, so they have an opportunity to find family supporting jobs.

Sheridan will face Cullen's former campaign manager Austin Scieszinski and state representative Janis Ringhand in the Democratic primary.
