7TH DISTRICT: TV journalist vies for congressional position
As an Eau Claire television reporter, Pat Kreitlow covered stories about government and the impact that laws have on everyday people. What he discovered was not always good news.
In 2005, Kreitlow decided to step out from in front of the camera and join the ranks of local politicans.
The journalist quit his job and ran for the Wisconsin State Senate in District 23 and eventually served in the legislature from 2007 to 2011.
