There is another Democrat in the race for congress in western Wisconsin.
State Representative Katrina Shankland yesterday joined the field to eventually take on Republican Congressman Derrick Van Orden next fall. Shankland is the fourth Democrat in the race, former La Crosse County Board chairwoman Tara Johnson, business owner Rebecca Cooke, and Harvard Law School student Aaron Nytes are all also running. Van Orden is in his first term in congress, and is considered a possible vulnerable candidate. Western Wisconsin 3rd Congressional District is a possible swing District in the state.
