[Juneau, WI] — Today, Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald clinched a decisive victory in his bid for Wisconsin’s fifth congressional district.
“I’m so grateful for the outpouring of support that we’ve received throughout this race, and we’re honored by today’s decisive victory,” said Fitzgerald. “This year brought some unprecedented challenges, and I’m proud that we ran a positive, aggressive campaign amid the current crisis facing our nation. Despite these challenges, we ran a campaign centered around the issues that the voters of Wisconsin’s Fifth care about: keeping Wisconsin families safe, rebuilding our local economy, and protecting our Wisconsin values. The steadfast support that we received from the grassroots leaders of Wisconsin’s Fifth and conservatives from all over Wisconsin was instrumental to today’s victory.”
“I entered this race because I wanted to bring the common-sense, conservative reforms that we’ve championed here in Wisconsin to Washington,” added Fitzgerald. “The events of recent months have further cemented the idea that we need experienced, proven conservative leaders in Congress to fight for Wisconsin values and protect our democracy. I’m excited to bring my years of experience championing conservative reforms to our nation’s capital, where my first priority will be safely reopening the economy so that Wisconsin residents and businesses can get back to work.”
Fitzgerald will be filling the seat being vacated by retiring Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, who announced his retirement after serving 21 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Fitzgerald’s campaign amassed support from conservatives from the Fifth Congressional District and around Wisconsin. Fitzgerald’s congressional bid was endorsed by conservative names from around the state, including Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, Governor Tommy Thompson, Lieutenant Governor Margaret Farrow, Senator Leah Vukmir, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow, No Better Friend Corp. President Kevin Nicholson, and many other current and former conservative leaders.
