Kind, Walz Earn A's From NRA
Six incumbent Congressmen in Wisconsin are being backed for re-election by the National Rifle Association...including one Democrat, Ron Kind.
La Crosse's Congressman rated an 'A' from the NRA for his positions on more than a dozen issues...from opposing a ban on semi-automatic weapons to supporting certain concealed-carry bills.
