Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald won his bid to the U.S. House of Representatives, replacing retiring U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner in the 5th Congressional District. With most precincts reporting, Fitzgerald led his Democratic opponent Tom Palzewicz with almost two-thirds of the vote.
“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 said in a statement.
Freshman U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil won reelection to Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, beating Democrat Roger Polack. This will be his second term in the southern Wisconsin seat formerly held by House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Milwaukee’s U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore won reelection by a 2-1 margin over her Republican opponent Tim Rogers. Madison’s U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan also sailed to victory over his Republican challenger Peter Theron 70%-30%.

Tiffany will serve his first full term after replacing retiring Sean Duffy in a special election for the 7th Congressional District seat. He won a rematch against his opponent in the special election Tricia Zunker.
