State Rep. Kathy Bernier, R-Lake Hallie, holds the seat. White, a Democrat, lives in Altoona.
“The Chippewa Valley has been my family’s home for generations, and I am running for the Assembly now to bring the Valley’s voice back to Madison,” said White, an active community member and former Eau Claire City Council president.
The 68th Assembly District includes parts of Chippewa, Clark, Eau Claire, Jackson and Trempealeau counties.
The fall general election is Nov. 8.
