State Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Minocqua) will seek the 7th Congressional District seat soon to be vacated by Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wausau). Tiffany is making stops throughout the district today to make his announcement.
“When I was elected to the state legislature, Wisconsin had serious problems: budget deficits, high unemployment, businesses fleeing our state, and a deep pessimism. I asked voters to put their trust in me to deliver results,” Tiffany said. “I don’t plan to go to Washington looking for a fight, but I can guarantee I will never back down from one. Now more than ever we need to stand up to preserve our freedoms and our bedrock values.”
Tiffany said he is running for Congress to be the ally President Trump needs to keep the country moving forward.
“I believe I am that ally and I am proud to announce my candidacy for Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District. I look forward to running a positive campaign and talking to voters across the district. I know if they put their trust in me, I will deliver results for Northern and Western Wisconsin.”
Last month Duffy announced his resignation to spend more time with his growing family.
