Rep. Ron Kind thanks fellow Democrats at election watch party

LA CROSSE (WKBT) Outgoing Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) thanked his Democratic colleagues and friends in a speech at the Democrats’ watch party at Pettibone Resort Tuesday night.

Kind held Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District seat for 26 years but did not seek reelection this year.

Before the watch party concluded the night of the midterms, Kind made sure to thank his fellow Democrats for all their effort.

“Tawni and I just want to, as I conclude, thank you all for your help and your support, and especially your friendship over these last 26 years as your representative in Congress,” he said.

Kind’s endorsement Brad Pfaff lost the race to Republican Derrick Van Orden.
