First District Congressman Paul Ryan will face one of two Democrats vying for his seat next year as the Republican seeks election to a ninth term in Congress.

Rob Zerban of Kenosha, will square off in the Democratic primary against Amar Kaleka, a Milwaukee native and son of the slain leader of the Oak Creek Sikh temple.

It seems women candidates and women’s issues may play prominently in Wisconsin’s 2014 elections. Two are interested in running for governor, and at least one national group – Emily’s List plans to be involved. Among the legislation that’s been generating strong reaction in Wisconsin are items concerning abortion and contraception. And two new PACS - political action committees recently formed to kick-up more interest here among female candidates and voters.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne announced Thursday that he’ll seek the Democratic nomination for attorney general.

If the race for Wisconsin governor happened now instead of next fall, it could be a toss-up.

Poll gives Gov. Walker a 47-45 percent edge over Democrat Mary Burke, a 47-44 percent edge over Dem. Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, about a year before the 2014 vote.

While Republican activists fan out to register voters, Democratic women have formed a new PAC. Both camps know they have about one year to prevail.
