A key endangered Democratic incumbent admitted Tuesday that “turnout isn’t where we need it to be” if he’s to win reelection.

“We have just been going over the morning voting numbers — and turnout isn’t where we need it to be in our strong areas,” campaign manager Julie Heun wrote in an e-mail. “This race is going to be a squeaker — and every vote will count.”
Kagen’s facing a tough reelection race in Wisconsin’s 8th congressional district against GOP candidate Reid Ribble.
