The economy, bipartisanship and questions about his rumored run for governor were at the forefront of conversation this Thursday when State Representative Ron Kind went “On the Issues” with Mike Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy at Marquette.

Kind, a self-described “centrist” Democrat representing Wisconsin’s third congressional district, which includes much of western Wisconsin, discussed both state and national political issues with Gousha at Eckstein Hall. After pressing questions from Gousha, Kind stated that he would not, in fact, run for governor against Scott Walker in the likely recall election.

“I’ve always had an interest in serving as governor of this great state,” Kind said. “But I’ve got a full plate right now. I care deeply about the future of my home state, and nothing concerns me more than what I’ve seen happen here in the past year.”

While Kind does not intend to run for governor, he talked about the importance of bipartisanship in Wisconsin’s politically polarized climate. He stated that compromise was needed, especially to revitalize Wisconsin’s economy an. create health care reform.
