MILWAUKEE - The race to replace retiring Republican congressman Rep. Tom Petri just got a little more crowded.


Republican State Rep. Duey Stroebel has been in the Assembly since 2011. He said Saturday he's running for Congress because he wants to bring strong conservative principles to Washington.


He said he was born and raised in the district and he's very much in touch with the needs of local constituents.


Petri held the congressional seat for 35 years. His office initially said he'd run for re-election, but the 73-year-old now plans to announce his retirement Monday.


State Sen. Glenn Grothman has already said he'll challenge Petri in a primary. Two other Republicans considering a run are state Sen. Joe Leibham and John Hiller, who has worked with Gov. Scott Walker.

Stroebel becomes 2nd GOP candidate for Petri seat Saturday, April 12 2014, 03:29 PM CDT
