On Gard! Cong. Steve Kagan Shows Up On Endangered List

Incumbent 8th District Democrat Congressman Steve Kagan shows up in a roundtable discussion of possible winners and losers in the November election.

Text and podcast here.

Kagan is a first-termer who took Mark Green's seat, vacated when Green to run and lose the '06 Governor's race.

His opponent is the ultra-rightist John Gard, the former Wisconsin Assembly Speaker who lost to Kagan in '06.

The pundits interviewed by Salon predict Democratic gains overall, but some losses, so Wisconsin Democrats may need a major effort in the Green Bay area to retain Kagan and foil Gard again.
