Assembly Democrats pick Hintz as minority leader again

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Assembly Democrats have picked Gordon Hintz to lead them again this session.

The caucus re-elected Hintz as leader during a meeting Tuesday. He was the only nominee.

Hintz hails from Oshkosh. He has served in the Assembly since 2006. Democrats first elected him minority leader in 2017.

Republicans have controlled the Assembly since 2011 and Hintz is faced with yet another frustrating two-year session after Republicans emerged from the election last week with an overwhelming 63-36 advantage in the chamber. Democrats managed to flip only one seat under his leadership.

Hintz has blamed the poor showing on Republicans’ gerrymandering of district boundaries to consolidate GOP supporters and spread out Democratic voters.
