Barca expected to be unopposed to retain Assembly minority leader's post

Assembly Dems meet today to pick their leadership team for next session, and signs point to Minority Leader Peter Barca running unopposed to retain his spot.

Barca, D-Kenosha, indicated yesterday he plans to run again, and multiple Dem sources said no one else was aggressively making calls to challenge him. 

Those running for other spots include: 

*Reps. Gary Hebl, D-Sun Prairie, and Dianne Hesselbein, D-Middleton, circulated letters to colleagues indicating their interest in running for assistant minority leader. Rep. Katrina Shankland, D-Stevens Point, served in that role this session, but told WisPolitics.com she's not running for a leadership post this time around. 

*Rep. Mark Spreitzer, D-Beloit, informed colleagues he'll run for caucus chair. Rep. Andy Jorgensen, D-Milton, held the post this session, but he decided against seeking re-election. 

*Rep. Steve Doyle, D-Onalaska, circulated a letter indicating plans to run for caucus vice-chair. Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, D-Milwaukee, has not responded to multiple voice mails left over the last few days. But multiple Dem sources said she was not expected to seek re-election to the post and instead focus on issues in her district. That includes an effort she started this fall to turn out more Hispanic voters. 

*Rep. Beth Meyers, D-Bayfield, circulated a letter to colleagues that she plans to again seek her post as caucus secretary. 

Rep. Josh Zepnick, D-Milwaukee, served as sergeant at arms this session. But he told WisPolitics.com he won't seek re-election to the post.

Dems have until noon to indicate plans to run for a leadership spot. But they also have the option to run as write-in candidates.
