Amar Kaleka wants to kick off his congressional campaign with an ad that could air just before Super Bowl kick-off Sunday.

Kaleka – son of slain Sikh Temple President Satwant Singh Kaleka – plans to run against Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, on the Democratic ticket, and he is aiming for a threshold of $57,000 to get his ad on the air.

The fundraising campaign as of Tuesday evening registered $2,600 on crowdtilt.com. Visitors to the website can also view a preview of the ad Kaleka hopes will hit the airwaves Sunday.

He told The Huffington Post last fall that he blames Ryan for the government shut down, and he wants to head to Washington to focus on doing the job and not playing politics.

 

If Kaleka can raise the necessary cash, he will face Kenosha businessman Rob Zerban in a Democratic primary. Zerban unsuccessfully ran against Ryan in 2012 but lost to the incumbent by 2,500 votes in Racine County and 10 percentage points overall, the tightest race Ryan has faced in more than a decade.
