Leibham to make campaign announcement Tuesday.

by Jerry Bader

Seeing as this release is from "Team Leibham" and given the nature of the release, it'd be one of the great political shocks of all time if he announced he isn't running in the 6th Congressional District Republican Primary, which he has been expected to do. This would create an interesting situation for Republican's in Leibham's 9th district state senate seat, where he cannot run if he's running for Congress.


Sheboygan, Wis. State Sen. Joe Leibham will make a campaign announcement Tuesday regarding his potential bid for Congress in Wisconsins 6 th District.

I am thankful for and humbled by the great amount of input I have received from constituents and friends over the last few days about the possibility of running for Congress, Leibham said. I look forward to gathering with friends and family on Tuesday to formally announce my decision.

Leibham, a resident and taxpayer of the 6th Congressional District, lives in Sheboygan with his wife, Heather, and their three young children.

Leibham has represented portions of Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Calumet and Fond du Lac counties in the state Senate and the greater Sheboygan area in the state Assembly. Prior to his years of public service, Leibham worked in the private sector for Sargento Foods in Plymouth and the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce.
