It looks like former state Assembly Speaker John Gard will get a rematch with Democratic U.S. Congressman Steve Kagen in November.

One potential GOP challenger says he won't run for the 8th District House seat in northeast Wisconsin and another sounds iffy at the moment.

As Gard builds steam, state Rep. Steve Wieckert, R-Appleton, says he'd rather tackle his unfinished business in Madison.

Rep. Frank Lasee, R-Bellevue, says he'll decide in a couple months if he'll run in a congressional primary against Gard, who's been raising money for a few months.

Lasee noted that Gard got a $60,000 boost from a national group called Challengers Helping Obtain the Majority, or CHOMP.

That refers to the GOP's effort to win back the majority it lost in both houses of Congress in 2006.

Green Bay Mayor Paul Jadin also expressed an interest in the House seat last year. He says he'll probably announce in the coming week if he plans to go for it.

Kagen, an allergist from Appleton, won the post using mostly his own money. However, that won't be the case this time.
