Swing District Democrat Announces He Won’t Run For Re-Election

House Democrats are already struggling to hold on to their slim majority and they were just dealt even more bad news, Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind will not be seeking re-election. The news works to the Republican Party’s advantage considering Kind won Wisconsin’s third district by narrow margins and former President Trump previously won the district.

The Democrat shared on Twitter that after 26 years it’s “time to step back.”

Townhall reports:

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) said that Kind chose retirement over defending House Democrats’ record, including “rising prices, rising crime, and skyrocketing illegal immigration.”

“Ron Kind chose to retire rather than defend Democrats’ record of rising prices, rising crime, and skyrocketing illegal immigration,” NRCC spokesperson Mike Berg said in a statement. “Kind’s retirement is the clearest sign yet that House Democrats’ majority is toast.”

The Wisconsin Democrat narrowly won reelection in 2020, and former President Donald Trump carried the district by almost 5 points. Kind is one of a growing list of lawmakers who will not seek reelection.

Republicans are favored to take back the House next year and now Kind’s decision makes it even easier.

“Kind’s retirement is the clearest sign yet that House Democrats’ majority is toast.” Let’s hope this boy is correct. But after yesterday’s Republican traitors voted with the Democrats does it really matter?

Excellent point! After the Republican swine betrayed We (Us) the People I see a pattern of repeated betrayal confirmed. Honestly, I would love to support the Republican cause, but with so many Republican traitors and turncoats, it is hard to know whom to trust. Look at the ‘conservative’ appointees to the Supreme Court who betrayed Trump’s ideas and cause and the American people.

I was asked in an email from the republican party if I support the republican party, If I could have asked THEM a question, I would have asked them if the republican party would support ME (US)!!

We sent them a majority in congress with Trump as OUR president to (among other things) repeal oblamodontcare. THEY DID NOTHING, but resist Trump!!

Amen, brother. The GOP seriously needs to look at cleaning out it’s own Augean stables as well as those of their opponents.

🤔 The biggest problem is getting rid of the RINOs in the GOP…they’ve gotten used to “the pork” they’re getting in the DC-swamp, from the demo(n)©rats❗️

The republicans also have the same agenda as the democRATS. That’s why they always gine in to the democRAT demands with the “promise” they will get what they (republicans) want “later”! Never happens, they never learn!

Any democrat who doesn’t see the approaching disaster isn’t paying attention. The criminal enterprise that replaced the democrat party came gradually but snapped into place with the 2020 election. Regardless of how the judiciary deals with this colossal crime, the people are catching on with exposure of Arizona, Wisconsin, Georgia, et al.

Ron Kind is a symptom of more representatives who reject being a part of this criminal activity. If the judiciary doesn’t administer just punishment to criminal participants, the people will rise up in violence against their tormentors, a second civil war if you will. Too much time already has passed.

WE need reform and to make sure valid voter laws are in place, and your Governor, Mayor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, City counsels, as well as elected Congressmen and Senators need to unite to save the country from destruction. Stealing elections like Dominion and other Cyber agents did is how other countries become communist, and then they lose all their freedoms, viability, rights, sovereignty, and honest fair elections! When you have Republicans shirking their duty like the Democrats, you have a mess that is only going to get worse.

If you look at actual history and facts, the Democrats have been stealing elections far beyond the last 4 elections, this happened even before JFK won because of the crooked system in Chicago. Americans have been voting for honesty, lawfulness, balanced government, and creating jobs here, Made in America and conservative governance. Everything has been sent overseas destroying the average American worker and businessman. Be prepared for a world you weren’t raised in that no longer represents your values.

Well I recall the dictum of good old Herman Cain as best I recall, that the Republican Congress is subject to a Rule of Thirds: one third are honest, devoted people. One third are evil, self-centered scoundrels on the take. The remaining third are shifty opportunists who are wishy-washy and can be swayed either way, changing their flag according to the wind. Unfortunately ALL are on the gravy train, feathering their nests in perpetuity from the public provender. All of this serves to validate and entrench a political Elite Class. And many of these Elites care as much for the American voter as they care for the life of a fly.

Just another ”leader” without the guts to return the Democratic Party to representing the people. He takes his pension and all of the ”perks” and goes home instead of standing up to fight the leftists and communists that have destroyed his party. OR he is one of them and has no guts.
