We did not a find a WI EYE Interview from either Republican Candidate for 2020.
Incumbent Ken Skowronski did have a 2018 Wi Eye Candidate Interview at which some candidates spoke about marijuana, he did answer the marijuana question at the end of the interview, but at that time he said he is not in favor of it and is becoming more educated on the subject.
Skowronski as an Incumbent Republican assembly representative from Franklin has not co-sponsored any legislation on marijuana reform since elected in 2013.
March 2020 Republicans circulated a decriminalization bill for co-sponsorship which he did not co-sponsor.
Skowronski received a Failing Grade from NORML during the 2019-20 Legislation Session.
