Eau Claire (WQOW) - We now know who will be facing Democrat Ron Kind in the November election.

Republican Derrick Van Orden has defeated fellow Republican Jessi Ebben in the primary for Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District.

Van Orden is a retired Navy Seal. He said his experience in the military makes him a proven leader.

Van Orden was endorsed by former Governor Scott Walker, former Representative Sean Duffy, Vice President Mike Pence and others.

Ebben drew criticism from some Republicans for signing petitions to recall Governor Scott Walker during the Act 10 debate.
