Former 1st District Congressman Mark Neumann -- he represented us from 1995 to 1998 in the seat held since then by Paul Ryan -- formally threw his hat into the political ring today ... this time for governor.
A Republican who left the House of Representatives in 1998 when he unsuccessfully challenged Russ Feingold for the Senate, Neumann officially announced his campaign today, listing a number of key issues in an online news conference. Neumann had filed papers to run in July.
One of those issues couldn't be more timely: KRM commuter rail: Neumann questions its economic viability.
