Petri opponent says Dems have to fight 'every step of the way'

Princeton Dem Joe Kallas told delegates that he could just as easily be any member of the audience as he looks to challenge longtime U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac, this fall.

But he challenged Democrats, saying that while not all of them could run for office, all of them can make a difference.

He said moderate Republicans are a thing of the past, and questioned the limits of corporate greed in that party.

"I am running for office because we all have to do what we can to stop the right-wing philosophies of the Republican Party," Kallas said. "Because at some point it will be too late, and that time is rapidly approaching."
