Grothman Opponent Is Wealthy

One of the two candidates hoping to oppose incumbent Congressman Glenn Grothman for the 6th Congressional District seat next year could bring a lot of money to the campaign. Former Senator Herb Kohl’s nephew Dan Kohl sas announced he will be opposing Grothman. Grothman says Dan Kohl has money and knows how to raise it. He says Kohl spent a lot of time in Washington being a lobbyist and one of the things lobbyists do is raise money for campaigns. Congressman Grothman says it will be the first time he has had an opponent with that kind of financial backing. He says Kohl isn’t from the heart of the district; he grew up in River Hills. The other announced candidate is Democrat Scott Olmer of Plymouth.
