      A Tug-Of-War Over Obey's Seat

      Well before Sean Duffy (R) declared his candidacy against 20-term Democratic incumbent David Obey, people had heard of him; 13 years ago, he was on MTV's The Real World program. He won further attention when he began making headway against Obey in the polls. And then, when Obey shocked everyone in May by announcing his retirement, everyone knew who Duffy was. The elected district attorney in a northern Wisconsin city, Duffy faces Julie Lassa, a state senator. Obey is the third-longest serving member of the House; in 1969, he won a special election when Melvin Laird left to become President Nixon's defense secretary. -Ken Rudin
