Eau Claire (WQOW) -- An Eau Claire veteran is planning a challenge to 12-term Congressman Ron Kind.

Republican John Garske is a vocational rehabilitation counselor and the owner of Garske's Veteran Services in Eau Claire. In a press release, Garske said he also served as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army for 20 years.

Garske said he is running to reduce government spending, lower the cost of medication and to protect second amendment rights. His campaign is planning a pair of kick-off events on January 22, including one in Eau Claire.

Representative Ron Kind (D) has served the 3rd Congressional District since 1997.
