Kyle Frenette is the founder of Middle West Management. He's managed two-time Grammy award winner Bon Iver and founder Justin Vernon since 2007.

USA Today Network-Wisconsin says Frenette has submitted his candidacy to run as a Democrat for the 7th District to the Federal Elections Commission. Frenette, of Chetek, is expected to make a formal campaign announcement in the next two weeks.

Margaret Engebretson, an attorney from Polk County, announced her candidacy earlier this week. The FEC also lists Allen Campos, of Sheldon, as a candidate for the Democratic nomination.
