Kind urges Dems to work hard to replace Obey, Doyle

U.S. Rep. Kind lauded the state's most prominent retiring Democrats in his speech to the Dem convention, saying that although Dave Obey and Jim Doyle won't be replaced, the "right people" can be elected to continue their work.

Kind, D-La Crosse, said he knew that presiding over the House as it passed health care reform was a highlight of Obey's career, and that "it's such an honor to serve with him."

Kind said the decision on health care wasn't made in March, but rather in November, when Democrats showed up at the polls.

"It really was a big deal," Kind said, cracking that he was paraphrasing the vice president.

He urged Dems to work hard to elect Julie Lassa to the 7th CD, and pledged that "no one would work harder" than a Gov. Tom Barrett if their days in the House together were any indication.
