Heaster acknowledges uphill fight in the 5th CD

Dave Heaster acknowledged he faces an uphill battle against GOP U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner in the heavily Republican 5th CD.

Still, he said he wasn’t running because he thought it would be easy, but because he knew it would be hard and it had to be done.

“If not me, who’s going to do this? If not now, when are we going to do this?” he asked.

Heaster laid out three vows to fix Washington, D.C., if elected that he hoped others would follow.

That includes reviewing his voters or stances with no fewer than three people of the opposite party to exchange ideas on how each was voting and why, that he will conduct a weekly happy hour that only those who bring someone form the opposite party can attend, and a promise to remain civil while interacting with those of the opposite party.

“The more we get to know people and we get out of the confines of the party battles, we’re going to find we’re a lot more similar than we are different,” Heaster said.
