Newly-elected Sen. Brad Pfaff announces a run for Congress

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Newly-elected Wisconsin State Senator Brad Pfaff (D-Onalaska) announced a run for Congress on Monday, Oct. 4. to replace Rep. Ron Kind's seat.

"I'm running for Congress because there is a better way forward for our community and our country," Pfaff announced online. "It's time to get to work, tackling the problems people actually face."

"On the farm when you face a tough challenge, you pull together as neighbors to get the job done," Pfaff tweeted. "Today, too many people in Washington have forgotten that getting things done for us is their job." 

Derrick Van Orden, who narrowly lost to Kind last year, will likely be Pfaff's Republican challenger.
