Retired Army Colonel Steve Toft (R) announced yesterday that he will challenge 11-term veteran Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind (D-La Crosse) next year. Republicans are more optimistic about the state’s western region since President Trump carried this district in November (49-45%), and Gov. Scott Walker is expected to run strong at top of ticket here. Though only 54 years of age, Rep. Kind is entering his 22nd year in the House. Armed with more than $2.8 million in his campaign account, the Congressman will not be easy to unseat no matter how the state’s outside political dynamics unfold.
