Democrat drops out of congressional race

Three Democrats remain in the primary race for the right to take on incumbent 1st District Congressman Paul Ryan.

John Mogk has dropped out of the race for the primary, which is Sept. 9.

In a statement posted on his campaign Web site, Mogk said he plans to remain involved in local and national politics.

“From the beginning of the campaign, we held to my message that the election was bigger than any one candidate,” Mogk wrote.

“It has been a long-standing goal of the Democratic Party in the 1st Congressional District to defeat Paul Ryan in the November election, and I will not stand in the way of achieving that … The election was never about me, but about making a positive change for the people.”

Three Democratic candidates — Paulette Garin and Mike Hebert, both of Kenosha, and Marge Krupp, of Pleasant Prairie — will square off in the Sept. 9 primary for the right to face Ryan in the Nov. 4 general election. Libertarian candidate Joseph Kexel, of Kenosha, also will be on the ballot.
