Republican State Sen. Bob Welch announced Saturday he will challenge Democratic U.S. Senator Russ Feingold in the 2004 election.
Welch was trounced in his 1994 race against Sen. Herb Kohl, and he is already calling this an "underdog" campaign.
That doesn't mean he is lacking confidence.
"Taking on an entrenched, liberal incumbent may be a formidable task, but we're putting together a great and growing team that will lead us, and Wisconsin, to victory in 2004," Welch said in a statement.
Further down in the artical about another guy planing to run:
One likely candidate is Brownsville businessman Tim Michels, a retired Army officer who describes himself as "pro-life, pro-gun, pro-business, anti-tax, anti-big government."
Coul end up being interesting come election time.
As a hijack....Madison will soon be seeing commercials for the DNC blasting Bush about "deliberately misleading" the citizens in his quest for war with Iraq, and hiding the truth about WMD's.
I hope they find some after these commercials are run....make the libs look like the horn blowers they are.
