MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Democratic president of the Wausau School Board announced Monday that she is running for Congress in her heavily Republican northern Wisconsin district, in a race that could provide an early signal of voter moods ahead of next fall's presidential election.

Tricia Zunker, a justice on the Ho-Chink Nation Supreme Court, is trying to become the first Native American elected to Congress from Wisconsin. Zunker told Wisconsin Public Radio that she wants to be a voice for struggling ginseng and dairy farmers.
