Long-time Congressman Tom Petri will not run for re-election

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Congressman Tom Petri says he will not seek re-election this fall in the 6th Congressional district.

An official announcement will be made during a town hall meeting in Neenah Monday.

A little more than a week ago, Wisconsin state Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) announced he would move into the district ahead of a possible primary challenge against Petri.

Petri, a Fond du Lac Republican, has been in Congress since 1979. The 73-year-old is completing his 18th term in office. 

That Monday announcement is scheduled for a town hall meeting from 4 to 5 p.m. inside the council chambers at Neenah City Hall.
