Sports broadcaster declares Libertarian run for Secretary of State in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Madison sports announcer will challenge Democratic Secretary of State Doug LaFollette next year.

Richard Kalafut Jr., who goes by the professional name of Rich Reynolds, announced Monday he plans to run as a Libertarian.

Reynolds, who hails from Columbus, is a restaurant manager as well as an on-air sports personality for WIFS-TV in Madison. He does public address announcing for the Madison Capitols hockey team, Supreme Hits Boxing and UW-Madison as well. He also was the first public address announcer for the Madison Mallards baseball team.

He says in a news release entitled “Reynolds will fight LaFollette” that he’s proud of never running for public office in the past and he wants to abolish the secretary of state, calling the position unnecessary.

A call to LaFollette’s office to seek comment rang unanswered.
