Assembly Rep O'Connor announces Re-Election Campaign

For Immediate Press Release: March 13, 2024

Assembly Rep Jerry O’Connor Announces Re-election Bid for Wisconsin’s new 60th Assembly District

On Wednesday, State Assembly Representative Jerry O’Connor (R-Fond du Lac) announced that he will be running for re-election this November in Wisconsin’s 60th Assembly District. The new 60th Assembly District lines encompass the City of Fond du Lac, the Village of North Fond du Lac, and the townships of Empire, Fond du Lac, and Friendship.

“I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to represent the people in my Fond du Lac District under the current 52nd District lines and for next year, with a few changes drawn up, the 60th District. I hope you will entrust me in taking on this role once again in 2025-2026 as we continue to fight for: lower taxes, smaller government, election integrity, streamlined regulations, and conservative social values.”

Following his retirement from a banking and business career, Representative O’Connor was elected to represent the 52nd Assembly District in 2022. O’Connor noted, “I signed up for this job because I sincerely care about the people in my communities, together with the broader concerns we see nationally and the challenges that are tearing at the social fabric of our nation.  I will continue to approach these issues with the common-sense conservative, time tested principles that built this great nation.”

In the 2023-2024 session O’Connor served as the Chair of the Speaker’s Task Force on Human Trafficking, Vice Chair of the Financial Institutions Committee and a member of these committees:  Colleges & Universities; Corrections; Family Law; Jobs, Economy & Small Business Development; and Workforce Development & Economic Opportunities

Representative O’Connor authored 31 bills with the potential that half of those could be signed into law before this session ends.  Additionally, he co-sponsored more than 300 bills where the focus of these bills has been on tax cuts; election integrity; updating laws and regulations; introducing bills to reduce sex trafficking in Wisconsin; addressing free speech concerns on college campuses; promoting improved education outcomes; returning shared revenue back to our local jurisdictions; and holding government accountable to the people.

O’Connor further emphasized that, “the upcoming election cycles are crucial for our country and state. We need to come together and work towards the collective goal of electing Republicans up and down the ballot – in 2024 this includes the President, US Senator, the State Senators and Assembly Reps races. In 2025 elect a constitutionalist judge for the State Supreme Court, and then in 2026, we need to retire Governor Evers.”

Received NRA Endorsement

Protecting our constitutional amendments is a critical issue to me.  We cannot allow leftist initiatives to degrade or eliminate our rights set forth in the 1st, 2nd or 4th Amendments to the Constitution.  In order to protect all rights we possess, by contract under the constitution, we must fight attacks against each individual right.  As such, I have received the highest endorsement for a non-elected official given by the NRA.

Pro-Family PAC Makes Additional Endorsements Madison


– Wisconsin Family Action Political Action Committee (WFA PAC) announced today another round of candidate endorsements for this fall’s primary election and general elections.

These endorsements are in addition to those released earlier this year. An up-to-date list of WFA PAC-endorsed candidates is available HERE.

  • Attorney General Eric Toney
  • State Senate State Assembly Rachael Cabral-Guevara, SD 19 Erik Ngutse, AD 13 Brian Westrate, SD 23 Bart Williams, AD 32 Romaine Quinn, SD 25 Jerry O’Connor, AD 52 Cory Tomczyk, SD 29 Ty Bodden, AD 59 Adam Steen, AD 63 Karen Hurd, AD 68 Michael Bub, AD 87

Julaine Appling, WFA PAC director, commented, “Each of these candidates has met our high standards for endorsement. Some have proven and consistent conservative track records from elected positions they currently hold. Others who don’t have a track record on the issues of vital importance to us give every evidence they are committed to principles and values that align with ours. “We are always looking for candidates of good character, strong conservative beliefs, and leadership qualities to serve in our state government.

These candidates meet those criteria. We look forward to their serving in their respective offices with distinction, as they hold true to their principled beliefs while working to strengthen, preserve, and promote marriage and family, the sanctity of life, religious liberty, economic prosperity, educational freedom, and more on behalf of the constituents they represent and for the benefit of all Wisconsin citizens. “We urge voters to support these candidates in the days leading to the August 9 primary and then in the weeks heading into the general election on November 8.”

Additional endorsements for other offices for this fall’s elections will be forthcoming.

The United States Supreme Court Overturned Roe v Wade

I have looked at a number of posts celebrating the overturn of Roe v. Wade and the message I am most closely aligned with is the post from our current 52nd District Rep, Jeremy Thiesfeldt:

The United States Supreme Court Overturned Roe v Wade

Statement from Representative Thiesfeldt: "I have prayerfully awaited for this day for most of my life. Roe v. Wade has been overturned by the United States Supreme Court. This decision returns the legal authority over such procedures to the individual states where it has always belonged. This is the correct decision and was long overdue. Thank you to the justices who have shown tremendous courage in reversing this legal precedent. No judicial decision is permanent, doing this is not unprecedented, and our system allows for reversals. This ends nearly 50 years of judicial overreach by the nation's highest court.
There never has been such a "right" in the US Constitution. The result of this for Wisconsin is that the current law passed by the state legislature in 1849 is immediately in effect. Changing the state law requires further action from the state legislature. The decision from the Court today has always been a goal of mine as well as thousands of my constituents."
