A man who has run for Congress in the past is gearing up for another campaign.
John Pistone of Brookfield ran as an Independent write-in candidate in 2012 and petitioned his way onto the ballot in 2014 in the 5th Congressional District. He has since registered with the Republican Party.
Pistone says he's received emails and letters from voters saying he should consider another run in 2016. He says he will take that challenge.
Pistone says even though his party affiliation has changed, his platforms have not. He is calling for common sense policies that move the country forward. Among the topics he proposed during past elections were energy independence, tax reform, and fair trade agreements.
