In the latest installment of our District Profiles series, we go to Wisconsin’s sixth congressional district, where a Republican state senator, Glenn Grothman, and a Democratic county executive, Mark Harris, will face off.

They both want to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Republican congressman Tom Petri. And even though the seat is open, its likely to go to the Republican.

Ann-Elise Henzl of Here & Now contributor station WUWM discusses the race with host Sacha Pfeiffer.
