District 97 covers most of the City of Waukesha and Wards 1, 2-6 and 8 in the Town of Waukesha.
Earlier this year, Krumins was also seeking the District 6 Aldermanic seat in the City of Waukesha that went to Adam Jankowski.
In addition to serving in the state assembly, Kramer, who grew up in Waukesha, was a member of the Waukesha County Board from 1998-99 and 2004-07.
