Farmer and business owner Rob Grover, 32, has announced his candidacy for the 92nd Assembly District seat held by Rep. Treig Pronschinske, R-Mondovi.
Grover, a fifth-generation farmer on the land near Galesville his family has owned since 1852, vowed to make rural economic development a top priority. He also is an owner and creator of Winghaven Pizza Farm.
While his campaign announcement news release doesn’t mention party affiliation, Grover confirmed he is running as a Democrat.
“I think too many elected officials put their political party before the people they represent, so I am running as someone from rural Wisconsin first and foremost,” Grover said. “Whichever party is in power, rural Wisconsin is always in the minority.”
He has been active in many civic organizations including the Knights of Columbus, Galesville Lions Club, Trempealeau County Community Television and the Trempealeau County Fair. Grover also serves on the Trempealeau County Parks, Tourism and Economic Development Committee.
“I’m running to put people over party and progress over politics,” Grover said in a news release. “It’s time to put people first, not Madison’s special, monied interests.”

The 92nd District contains portions of Jackson, Buffalo and Trempealeau Counties.
