Another Wisconsin Republican is taking a shot at un-seating long-time U.S. Congressman, Democrat Dave Obey.
Dave Robinson is touring the 7th District, announcing his candidacy. This is the St. Croix Falls native's first run for public office.
Robinson's background, includes 22 years in the Navy, running a small business and serving as a pilot for Northwest Airlines. He says, even as a freshman in Congress, he would seek out more money for the area. "There are military dollars you just have to go out and fight for them and stand up for the people in your district," says Robinson.
He qualifies his style as grassroots government. He and two other Republican challengers will face a primary in September. Incumbent Dave Obey has been in office since 1969.
