GREEN BAY, WI – Congressman Mike Gallagher was elected to represent Wisconsin’s Eighth Congressional District for a fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

After securing re-election, Congressman Gallagher released the following statement.
“Faced with rising inflation, skyrocketing crime, and plummeting education scores, America needs a massive dose of Wisconsin common sense to cure the nonsense coming out of Washington DC. Tonight, the American people have given us a chance to change course and it’s time to get to work.
“I am honored and humbled by the trust Northeast Wisconsin has placed in me to serve another term. I have always said I will treat each term as a deployment, and over the next two years, I promise to fight for freedom, seek principled solutions to the problems we face, and ensure that Northeast Wisconsin remains the best place in the country to live and raise a family.
“On Wisconsin, and God Bless America.”
