State Representative Janet Bewley (D-Ashland) announced her intention Monday to run for the Wisconsin State Senate in 2014 to represent the 25th Senate District.

Sen. Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) has represented the 25th Senate District since 1986. He announced in October he would not seek reelection.

Rep. Bewley was elected to represent the 74th Assembly District in 2010. She was reelected in 2012.

In a written statement Rep. Bewley said, "The many people I have met, the complicated issues I had to learn and understand, the thousands of miles of roads I have traveled only solidify my desire to serve the people of the north. I've been there, done that, and I want to do it again."

Rep. Janet Bewley
