Kallas Returns to Get Head Handed to Him Again

Thinking of formulating a full list of both Democrats and Republicans who run completely pointless runs for Congress in which they appear to like losing while gaining only 30 to 40 percent of the vote.

On the right, you’d easily have Chad Lee in WI-02 and Dan Sebring in WI-04.  On the left, you had Dottie LeClair in WI-08 during the last decade, Bryan Kennedy in WI-05, and probably by 2014 we’ll be adding Rob Zerban’s name to it for WI-01.

As for WI-06, we now have Democrat Joe Kallas.

A former Green Lake County Board member has announced his candidacy for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District in the November election.

Joe Kallas, who also served on the Princeton Town Board, said his campaign will focus on the national debt and high unemployment facing the nation.

Kallas becomes the second challenger to U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac. The other is Lauren Stephens, a conservative Republican from Columbus.

Candidates have until June 1 to file signatures to run for the office.

“The 33-year incumbent has done very little to address the needs of the working men and women of the district,” Kallas said in a press release, referring to Petri.

Kallas, who calls himself an independent Democrat, ran unsuccessfully against Petri, R-Fond du Lac, in 2010. He cited a late entry into the race as a major factor in his defeat. Petri won with 71 percent of the vote to Kallas’ 29 percent.

Sorry to tell this to Mr. Kallas, but redistricting somehow made WI-06 more Republican.
