Madison — Two Democratic state representatives from Madison are jumping into the race for Congress now that U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin is getting into the race for U.S. Senate. Rep. Kelda Helen Roys announced her candidacy in an email Tuesday morning, and Rep. Mark Pocan will announce his plans at a 10 a.m. news conference in front of the sign shop he owns. Roys’ website does not yet include endorsements. Pocan has already gone live with his website, which lists a host of endorsements. Three unions, five legislators from Dane County, 12 Dane County supervisors, 10 Madison aldermen and six Madison School Board members are backing Pocan.
