Do you still believe that Ron Kind represents you?
Every couple of months I like to visit opensecrets.org to get a reminder of who it is that Ron Kind represents and also to see if there is any new data and statistics. Each time I discover some new information that proves to me that Ron Kind is no longer a representative of the people of Western Wisconsin. He is a representative of the federal government and the special interest groups. Take a look at this statistic showing where Ron Kind's campaign funding comes from:
As you can see the majority of Ron Kinds campaign funding comes from outside the state and the number one metro area where he receives his money is Washington D.C. For several years now I have been trying to convince voters that Ron Kind is a Washington insider with very little interest in what the people of Western Wisconsin want. He even admitted this publicly during the big bailout debate. He said that calls to his office were split 50-50: half the calls were telling him to vote NO and the other half were telling him to vote HELL NO. So did he listen to the people of Western Wisconsin or did he bow before the alter of the big Wall Street bankers and his D.C. lobbyist friends? Just to show you how out of touch he is with Western Wisconsin voters and our values, he ended up voting YES.
This is the year to send someone to our nation's capitol who will truly represent the interests of the people. A man who has the courage to stand up to special interest groups and party pressure in order to do the right thing. That man is Dan Kapanke and I pray you will join me in supporting him in this election.
