Lee announces run for Congress


SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- A small business owner announced Wednesday he's running for Wisconsin's open 2nd District Congressional seat.

Republican Chad Lee made his announcement at stops in Sun Prairie and Beloit.

"I have a message for those of you here today and everyone else who's tired of the same results year in and year out, that this is the year we take back the second district," Lee said.

Lee lost to Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin in 2010. Baldwin is now running for U.S. Senate to replace Sen. Herb Kohl, who's retiring 

Four Democrats are running for Baldwin's seat: Iraq war veteran Matt Silverman, state Rep. Mark Pocan, state Rep. Kelda Helen Roys and Dane County Treasurer Dave Worzala.
