EAU CLAIRE -- For the first time, no Republican is running against U.S. House Democrat Ron Kind this fall -- and the GOP leader in Kind's western Wisconsin district says he's not surprised. Brian Westrate says the cost of a campaign would have been "astronomical," since Kind has...

Dislikes plan and Ron Kind

Dislikes Ron Kind and health care bill
Dear Editor, Congressman Ron Kind has long positioned himself as a friend of the small businesses and senior citizens. On Nov. 7, he proved that to be a lie by voting for the House health reform bill (H.R. 3962). The proof comes in a report from the Chief Actuary of Medicare and...

Unhappy with Kind
Dear Editor, Most of us know Ron Kind because he's our congressman, and has been for a while. What do we really know about the guy? Well, I've done a little research in the matter. Lord knows, I've the time. Since being laid off this spring, I've been hunkered down in my dad's summer...

Kind didn't respond
Dear Editor, I read two letters to the editor about Rep. Ron Kind. One was positive and one was negative. Now I have read that he might run for governor. I wrote to him in 2008 and January of 2009. He never answered my letters. I also wrote to Sen. Herb Kohl. Sen. Kohl answered...
