State Senate Votes to Fire Ag Secretary-designee Pfaff


The State Senate voted Tuesday afternoon to fire state Agriculture Secretary-designee Brad Pfaff, who was appointed by Governor Tony Evers. The senate voted 19-14 to reject Pfaff’s confirmation – all 19 republicans voted against Paff, while all 14 Democrats voted to keep him on the job. Five republicans who had voted in committee earlier this year to recommend Pfaff’s confirmation voted against his confirmation today, but did not offer reasons as to why their votes changed.

The Evers administration, along with state and federal Democratic office holders and a variety of ag industry groups urged Republicans to allow Pfaff to continue to serve in the position he’s held since January. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald cited what he called “missteps” Pfaff had with Republicans as justification for his nomination facing rejection. Fitzgerald told reporters on Friday that Pfaff “didn’t have the votes” to stay on the job.
