Some candidates switch parties to challenge Rep. Duffy

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The fall primary elections are two weeks from tomorrow -- and two candidates have switched parties to try and defeat Wausau House Republican Sean Duffy.

Don Raihala got 15-percent of the primary vote in 2010, when he ran as a Democrat for the 7th District House seat. He'll face Duffy in the G-O-P primary on August 12th. Mike Krsiean has run as both a Republican and Libertarian for the north central Wisconsin House seat. This time, he'll run as a Democrat to take on Ashland City Council member Kelly Westlund -- who's been endorsed by a number of groups including the Sierra Club and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.

Duffy is going for his third two-year term in the House. He replaced retiring Democrat Dave Obey almost four years ago.
