Kind won’t run for U.S. Senate

U.S. Representative Ron Kind has announced he won’t be running the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Herb Kohl. Representative Tammy Baldwin has already announced her candidacy and Kind’s decision means a Democratic primary is unlikely.

I have been urged by many across Wisconsin to run for Senate. I thank them sincerely for their steadfast support and their trust in my commitment to put solving peoples’ problems first and foremost. But that commitment has led me to this conclusion: Now is not my time to run for the U.S. Senate.
