Another Kagen challenger

Now Howard physician Marc Trager has put his name in the  ring.

The Republican field of candidates running to challenge U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton, gets bigger today as Howard physician Marc Trager announces his run for Congress.

Trager, who served in the U.S. Air Force, will make a number of announcements today across the 8th Congressional District, in Green Bay, Marinette and Appleton.

“Our campaign will target the economic and social issues important to families in the district, bringing new ideas and a fresh approach to the needs of Northeast Wisconsin,” Trager said in a release.

Trager filed for candidacy with the Federal Election Commission earlier this week. Other Republican challengers include Marc Savard and Reid Ribble. (Source: Marc Trager seeks GOP nomination in 8th district – GB PressGazette)
