Construction company owner Tim Michels won't run for Congress

FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A Republican who ran for the U.S. Senate a decade ago says he won't run for the open House seat in his home district.  

Construction company owner Tim Michels says the 6th District House seat given up by 35-year incumbent Tom Petri is, "not the right opportunity at this time."  

Michels said he's flattered to be mentioned as a possible replacement for Petri, who announced six days ago that he won't run for re-election.

Two other Republicans have said they'll run -- state Senator Glenn Grothman of West Bend and state Representative Duey Strobel of Cedarburg.  

State Senate Republican Joe Leibham of Sheboygan says he'll announce in a few days whether he'll join the GOP congressional field.
