Gruett says he seeks voters 'Republicans don't want' in 8th CD

Ron Gruett, the Dems' candidate in the 8th CD, conceded he isn't well-known as he heads into a campaign against U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble in northeastern Wisconsin.

So in order to compete, the Marian College chemistry professor said he plans "on forming a coalition of voters that the Republicans don't want" -- listing the middle class, women, union members, seniors, the LGBT community and students.

Gruett said Republicans have shown they don't want those voters through their attacks on the Affordable Care Act, education, social programs, abortion access and collective bargaining.

He also said he would like to see more people invested in campaigns through small-dollar contributions -- though he joked, "If anyone wants to donate thousands of dollars, I'll take those too."
