Former Fort McCoy Commander Running for Congress
The next opponent for La Crosse congressman Ron Kind has a pretty significant military background. Former Fort McCoy garrison commander Ray Boland says he'll run against Kind as a Republican in next year's third district congressional race. Boland, also the former state secretary of Veterans Affairs, complains about runaway spending, reckless borrowing, managerial dysfunction and political gridlock in Washington. Boland plans a formal announcement after the holiday season.
