Rep. Duey Stroebel signaled Monday that he wouldn't join a Republican primary challenge against U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, but might jump into the race if Petri chooses not to run for re-election.
Stroebel (R-Town of Cedarburg) strongly hinted that, if Petri runs, he won't add his candidacy to that of Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), who has already said that he is running to challenge the longtime incumbent.
Stroebel said Petri isn't conservative enough to represent his district.
"Someone who had indicated that he wasn't going to run decided he was going to run," Stroebel said of Grothman, explaining his own decision to back off a little. "The chances of Tom Petri retaining that seat if two people run against him are enhanced."

Better to have a clean shot at a rino instead of a split conservative vote.
But, Grothman’s run does explain why he was against article 5. He probably figures that the states would pass congressional term limits.
