Anderson Pulls Out Of Race


The field of Republicans hoping to replace U-S House Democrat Ron Kind of La Crosse got a little smaller yesterday.  

Chris Anderson pulled out of the race, leaving three other G-O-P hopefuls to square off in an August primary for the right to challenge Kind in November.  Anderson, a former aide to U-S Senator Ron Johnson, is joining Tony Kurtz's House campaign as his finance director.  Anderson said he'd rather support Kurtz -- a Prairie du Chien business owner and retired Army veteran -- because of his conservative ideas.  The other G-O-P candidates are Karen Mueller of Chippewa Falls and former Mauston alderman Ken Van Doren.  Kind, a 14-year House veteran, did not comment on Anderson's withdrawal from the race.  He said earlier this month that campaigns start too early, and he'll focus on doing his job for now.
