State Sen. Lassa's campaign may be gaining momentum

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) --   State Senator Julie Lassa's campaign to capture U.S. Rep. Dave Obey's congressional seat may be gaining momentum.

Lassa has hired staff, raised money, and developed a campaign message already. She's also started appearing at parades and dairy breakfasts to meet voters.

In an interview, the Stevens Point Democrat says launching a campaign after Obey's unexpected retirement in May has been like "going from 0 to 100 miles per hour in 10 seconds flat."

Republicans tried to portray Lassa as slow out of the gate in the campaign for the 7th Congressional District. That's drawn attention from both parties as a competitive seat that could be key to the control of the House.
