4-28-14 second democrat announces run for 6th district congressional seat

Oshkosh, WI (AP)  A second Democrat has entered the race to replace U.S. Rep. Tom Petri.  Petri announced earlier this month that he was not running for re-election to the congressional seat in eastern and central Wisconsin.   Gary Wetzel, a Ripon retiree, will vie for the Democratic nomination.  The 64-year-old Wetzel will run against Winnebago County Executive Mark Harris in the Democratic primary.  Wetzel says he doesn't expect to win, but he wants to give voters a choice. Wetzel has a mechanical engineering degree and worked most recently as a substitute teacher.  Three Republicans also are running for the seat.
