There are two more candidates in the race for Congress in Wisconsin’s northwoods.
Wausau School Board president and attorney Tricia Zunker and Lawrence Dale yesterday both jumped into the race. Dale lives in Michigan. There’s no word when they two will face-off, and Governor Tony Evers has yet to set a date for the special election to replace former Congressman Sean Duffy in Washington D.C.
Western Wisconsin’s seat in Congress is about to get some national attention. The conservative group FreedomWorks says it will target Congressman Ron Kind next year. Kind does not have a Republican challenger, yet, but FreedomWorks says western Wisconsin may be ripe for the taking. Many voters in Kind’s district voted for President Trump in 2016.
