10-24-13 leibham to face challenger for state senate
PLYMOUTH, Wis. (AP) — A community advocate and political newcomer says she plans to challenge Republican state Senator Joe Leibham for the Senate's 9th District seat next year. Martha Laning says she wants to help change the polarized environment in Madison. She's running as a Democrat, and says when it comes to creating jobs and protecting families, political parties shouldn't matter. The 9th District covers Sheboygan County, as well as parts of Manitowoc and Calumet counties.
