I’m fed up too, which is why I work to bridge the gap between Democrats and Republicans and work together to get the job done. I am proud to be consistently ranked the #1 most independent voice in the Wisconsin delegation, and will continue to put politics aside to find solutions to the problems Wisconsinites face,” said Rep. Ron Kind.
