As reported by WBAY News Menasha Republican has announced his candidacy for Wisconsin’s Sixth Congressional District. These means Republican Mullenix will primary Grothman. Before Grothman, the seat was held by Republican Tom Petri for 18 sessions going back to 1979.
Douglas Mullenix, is kicking off 120 days of campaigning by taking part in town halls and virtual meetings with voters.
The seat is currently held by Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman. Grothman is serving his fourth term in office.
Grothman has announced he plans to seek reelection. A Republican primary will be held on August 9th, 2022.
“Glenn Grothman has been in Congress for four terms but now is the time for a change in the district’s leadership. I have heard over and over that people don’t know who Glenn is and I would ask, if you don’t know Glenn, then how does Glenn know you and your needs? How can someone represent you in Washington D.C. if they don’t know you?” Mullenix asks. “I am running for Congress because I believe Wisconsinites deserve a new leader, one who will listen to them and help create a better life for them.”
Mullenix is originally from St. Louis. He’s lived in Mexico, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and France.
“Mullenix calls Wisconsin home because of the warm welcome his family received when relocating here combined with the midwestern values and work ethic of the community,” reads a statement from the campaign.
Mullenix has worked in management consulting, private equity and venture capital.
As the campaign develops I will report back with the what Mullenix thinks about cannabis reform. Chances are we will be stronger than Grothman on the issue of legalization.
*Update June 24th, 2022 : There is no Democrat Candidate that filed to run in this election. I met with Douglas Mullenix who had an excellent understanding on the issue of cannabis reform and I believe would be more helpful in federal legalization efforts than the Incumbent Grothman.
Wisconsin’s 6th congressional district is a congressional district of the United States House of Representatives in eastern Wisconsin. It is based in the rural, suburban and exurban communities between Madison, Milwaukee, and Green Bay.
