The Re­pub­lic­an primary race for Rep. Tom Petri’s (R) seat is a toss-up among state Sen. Glenn Groth­man (R), state Sen. Joe Leibham (R), and state Rep. Duey Stroebel (R), all of whom have tried to brand them­selves as the most con­ser­vat­ive. Leibham’s le­gis­lat­ive dis­trict makes up a large por­tion of the con­gres­sion­al dis­trict, but Groth­man seems to be the cen­ter of at­ten­tion in de­bates and has a repu­ta­tion as an ag­gress­ive con­ser­vat­ive. The win­ner of the Re­pub­lic­an primary race will likely beat Win­nebago County Ex­ec­ut­ive Mark Har­ris (D) in the gen­er­al elec­tion. (Roll Call)
