Ron Kind for WI 03 House District

Holding WI 03 House seat held by Ron Kind

In 2016, seeking his 11th term in Congress, Kind faced a primary challenge from Eau Claire teacher Myron Buchholz. Buchholz was an outspoken supporter of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who had been defeated in the 2016 Democratic Party presidential primaries but had carried Kind's congressional district in the Wisconsin presidential primary. Kind defeated Buchholz, 81% to 19%, in the primary, and faced no Republican challenger in the general election.
