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.

    Another very biased “district profile”.

    NPR has no credibility to cover these types of stories.

  • Cacimo

    Henzi stopped just short of begging democrats to come out and vote for Harris. This really should be counted in the political spending as a commercial for Harris.
