The 8th District Congressional race pits Republican Assembly Speaker John Gard against Appleton Doctor Steve Kagen.
Republican Gard saw a wide margin of victory over his primary opponent; Assembly colleague Terri McCormick. Gard says he's ready for the next step; he'll face physician Steve Kagen in November. Kagen defeated Nancy Nusbaum and Jamie Wall in Tuesday's primary, and says given White House support for Gard, the race could be a referendum on administration policy.
The race is expected to be one of the most expensive Congressional campaigns in state history, both candidates have strong financial resources.
