For us politicos the news comes as little surprise, but the news is still well worth mentioning: State Sen. Glenn Grothman will challenge Rep. Tom Petri in a primary:
State Sen. Glenn Grothman says he plans to run for Congress, challenging fellow Republican Tom Petri for the seat representing east-central Wisconsin.
Grothman on Thursday called Petri a “very good human being” but says he represents a time when Republicans stood for expanding government.
Mr. Grothman will surely be attacked as per usual as a far-right-of-center “Tea Party Extremist” or something like that. It should make an interesting election cycle even moreso.
