MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two Republicans who won special elections for the state Assembly have been sworn into office.

Bob Kulp, of Stratford, and Jessie Rodriguez, of Franklin, joined the Assembly on Wednesday.

Kulp is taking the 69th District seat covering Clark County that was vacated by former Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder.

Rodriguez is a school voucher advocate and is taking the 21st District seat vacated by Republican Mark Honadel.

Both Kulp and Rodriguez will serve the remaining 13 months of the term and will be up for election again in November 2014.

Republicans hold a 59-39 majority in the Assembly.

A third special election is scheduled for Dec. 17 for the seat vacated by Republican Jeff Stone, from Greendale.
