LA CROSSE, WI – Brad Pfaff issued the following statement after his victory in the 3rd Congressional District Democratic Primary:

“It’s truly an honor to be your Democratic nominee for Congress. I want to thank Deb McGrath, Rebecca Cooke, and Mark Neumann for a spirited race and I look forward to working with them to beat Derrick Van Orden in November.

Make no mistake, this election will be one of the most important of our lifetime. Derrick presents a clear and present danger to democracy and has proven time and time again that he lacks the temperament, character, or the judgment to be in Congress. Whether it was participating in the Capitol insurrection on January 6th, being placed on probation for taking a loaded gun into an airport, bragging about sexually harassing two female officers or berating a teenaged librarian aide because of a Gay Pride book display, Derrick is quite simply unfit to serve in Congress.

I look forward to working to earn your vote as we talk about the real issues facing hardworking Wisconsin families. Unlike my opponent, your voice and those across western and central Wisconsin will always be my top priority.”
