Eau Claire, WI – On Saturday, April 7th, the 3rd District Republican Party voted unanimously to endorse Steve Toft in his race to unseat longtime incumbent Ron Kind. Toft released the following statement:

“I am overwhelmed by the support I have seen across the entire district,” said Toft. “One unifying theme has been voiced by the thousands of folks I’ve met with, it’s time to retire the career politician Ron Kind. While serving my country for more than 30 years, I never imagined I would be a politician but meeting so many great people and traveling the district has been very rewarding experience. I am honored to get the endorsement and look forward to defeating Ron Kind in November.”

3rd District Chairman Brian Westrate had the following to say:

“We are so happy that Steve is running a great race to unseat Ron Kind,” said Westrate. “For far too long, we’ve had an empty suit representing us in Washington. The time for a change is now and we are excited to fully back Steve in this race.”

Delegates from all 18 counties of the 3rd District voted to endorse Steve Toft for Congress.
