The first Democrat is stepping forward to run for U-S House from western Wisconsin’s Third District. State Senator Brad Pfaff was elected to the state Senate last year. Before that, he was acting Agriculture Secretary for Governor Evers until 2019. Republican Derrick Van Orden announced his campaign in April. Incumbent Ron Kind announced in August that he won’t seek reelection to the seat he’s held for 25 years. The Third District is regarded as the most competitive in Wisconsin.
