Congressman is only Democratic in Wisconsin
Congressional delegation that supports TPP

Among some crowds, it's not an easy time for those politicians supporting the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. 

Wisconsin congressman Ron Kind is among the supporters of the deal, known as the TPP, but the La Crosse Democrat got a full face of hostility in Philadelphia.

Speaking to the Wisconsin delegation at breakfast Wednesday morning, Kind struggled to finish an address while protesters of TPP were trying to shout him down.

Kind is the only Democrat in the Wisconsin Congressional delegation that supports TPP, that involves a dozen nations along the Pacific rim, including the U.S.

Afterward he spoke, Kind cut comments short with reporters after repeatedly getting interrupted by those screaming about his support of the deal.
