Earlier this week, Zach posted that Representative Ron Kind from Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District had ruled out running for governor against Governor Walker in 2014.
After this past weekend’s Democratic Party of Wisconsin state convention, I would never have expected that Rep. Kind was interested in governor. But he certainly is running for a statewide seat. He hosted a large reception at the convention and was one of the major speakers on Friday night. But listening to his speech, where he repeatedly discussed the issues in the US Senate…and extolled the wisdom of Senator Tammy Baldwin and decried the voting record of Sen. Ron Johnson…I would speculate that Rep. Kind has his eye on Sen. Johnson’s seat in 2016!
