Controversy

Wisniewski's nomination papers were delivered by Jason Sidener, who is a political action representative for AFSCME (American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees). Sidener defended the nomination as a Republican candidate by saying "It is in our interest to see that Bob is defeated and having opponents from both parties helps that." His Democratic opponent Kerry Trask is also endorsed by AFSCME, but the third opponent Independent Robert Ziegelbauer is not. [2]

The Republicans had challenged the validity of all signatures on the nomination papers, but election regulators on the Government Accountability Board put Wisniewski's name back on the ballot "after 11 nomination signatures originally misplaced were found, which put him over the 200 needed to qualify." [3]
