New Candidate for Wisconsin's Eighth Congressional Distirct

The Green Bay Press Gazette is reporting that Brown County Supervisor Andrew Williams is going to enter the Republican primary for the 8th congressional district:

Brown County Supervisor Andy Williams will announce Monday that he'll seek the Republican nomination for the 8th Congressional District election in 2010.

Williams, 40, who represents part of De Pere, said the financial condition of the United States is his primary reason for seeking the seat.

"I'm getting into the race to cut taxes," Williams said. "Everyone recognizes where we're at, how much we're spending and how much the taxes are increasing."

Williams, an attorney, was elected to the County Board in 2007. He plans to make an official announcement at 11 a.m. Monday near the Brown County Veterans Memorial in Ashwaubenon.

This doubles the Republican field to two with Marc Savard previously announcing his candidacy.
