Just 65 percent of the 2008 presidential general election total showed up at the polls to oust Randy Hopper in senate district 18.
Still considering an election held in early August, a period when one never launches a marketing or political campaign, the turn-out was significant showing a general disgust with Hopper's turning his back on his community and family.
"It is an honor to have the support of the people of the 18th State Senate district," said King on election night. "I look forward to going to Madison to stand up for the working families, seniors and students of Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Black Wolf, Waupun and all across the 18th District. Their voices will be once again heard."
