Jamie Wall enters 8th CD race

Jamie Wall is the first, and perhaps will be the only Democrat, to get in the race against freshman GOP Rep. Reid Ribble in the 8th Congressional District, in the Green Bay area.

Politico says, "Democrats think he's a great recruit-Wisconsin bred, grew up on a dairy farm, first in his family to go to college (Madison grad/Rhodes Scholar) and now a business owner... Democratic strategists say he can wage a serious challenge to the freshman congressman. They plan to attack Ribble for moving outside the district and for not voting in recent Wisconsin elections. Ribble beat Steve Kagen last year."

Wall, 40, lost a 2006 primary race to Kagen, who was elected and served two terms.
