Wisconsin: Former Real World’ Star to Take On Obey

Ashland County District Attorney Sean Duffy (R) announced Wednesday he will run against Rep. Dave Obey (D) in 2010. Perhaps best known for being a cast member on the Boston season of MTV’s “The Real World,— Duffy is also a champion lumberjack.

“David Obey says he stands for Wisconsin values,— Duffy said in his announcement. “Last time I checked, spending money we don’t have is not a Wisconsin value, and promoting big government takeovers of private businesses is not Wisconsin common sense.—

Obey, the powerful chairman of the Appropriations Committee, won re-election with 61 percent last cycle against a little-known opponent. President Barack Obama won the district with 56 percent.
