[NEENAH, WI…] State Rep. Mike Rohrkaste (R-Neenah) today issued a statement clarifying his neutral position in the Republican primary for the 55th Assembly District after a deceptive campaign flyer was circulated in the district by candidate Lauri Asbury.
Rep. Rohrkaste’s statement read:
“Recently a number of residents in the 55th Assembly District contacted me about a campaign flyer from Lauri Asbury asking if I was endorsing her over another candidate, Rachael Cabral-Guevara. I know both Rachael and Lauri and they are good candidates for this seat, however, I have not endorsed any candidate in the Republican Primary. In order to avoid any confusion, I respectively ask candidates to not list me as a “campaign supporter” or use other language that may imply an endorsement in their campaign materials.
I look forward to supporting the eventual Republican nominee and working to ensure their election this November.”
In response to Asbury’s actions and Rep. Rohrkaste’s statement, the campaign of Rachael Cabral Guevara issued the following statement:
“It appears one of my primary opponents was caught misleading voters in the district. Kudos to Rep. Mike Rohrkaste for his clarification, and shame on Lauri Asbury for trying to deceive voters. This is just one example of how Asbury has been stretching the truth in this campaign,” said Cabral-Guevara.
Cabral-Guevara is also endorsed by Wisconsin Right to Life, Wisconsin Nurses Association, and various state representatives.

NPHS provides house calls, nursing services, labs, X-ray, and a full services clinic in Appleton and Green Bay.
