District native, son of an autoworker and gay Christian conservative, Boivin will deliver unique perspective as Speaker Ryan’s replacement
JANESVILLE, Wis. – Conservative Christian Dr. Brad Boivin announced his candidacy for Congress to replace the retiring Speaker Paul Ryan.
“I’m running to make politics work again,” declared Dr. Brad Boivin. “It’s time we get back to the basics of being a government of We, The People, where government empowers people and gets out of their way.”
Dr. Boivin is a mental health professional who treats people tackling addiction. As a citizen, he worked with the Wisconsin legislature to reform state law to increase access to addiction treatment by an estimated 500%, and did so without costing taxpayers a penny.
“As a mental health professional, I’m ready to use my healthcare experience and conservative principles to end the opioid epidemic,” Dr. Boivin said. “I’ve seen how welfare traps people in a system of despair that ultimately steals hope and dignity from them. This must change.”
As his campaign launch video shows, Dr. Boivin grew up in Janesville and is the son of an autoworker and administrative assistant. He is a Constitutional Conservative, whose Christian faith is deeply rooted. Boivin is gay and came out in 1994.
“As a Christian, a conservative, and a gay man, I learned to fiercely defend my Conservative principles and my Christian beliefs, which is why I am a strong defender of religious liberty today,” Boivin said.
Dr. Boivin says politicians on both sides of the aisle in Washington are ignoring the people.
“Like most grassroots conservatives, I find it shocking that Republicans in Congress passed a bloated omnibus budget that throws money at sanctuary cities and Planned Parenthood while not even securing our border. Let’s build The Wall already and pass President Trump’s agenda.
“Too many politicians won’t tell you what they’re going to do in office,” continued Dr. Boivin. “Well, I’m not a politician.”
That’s why Dr. Boivin is releasing his “My Word to Wisconsin” pledge.
“Growing up in Janesville, I learned that my word is my bond and my handshake seals a promise,” Dr. Boivin said. “Wisconsin, you have my word and I want you to hold me to it.”

“We are at our greatest as a nation when we draw on our faith in God, hope in America’s future and love for our fellow citizens,” Dr. Boivin concluded. “As your Congressman, these core American values, my conservative principles, and most importantly, my word will guide my service and actions.”
