[Juneau, WI] — Today, Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald clinched a decisive victory in the Republican primary for Wisconsin’s fifth congressional district. He goes on to the November General Election after securing today’s primary victory.
“I’m so grateful for the outpouring of support that we’ve received in the months since launching my bid for congress, and we’re overwhelmed by today’s decisive victory,” said Fitzgerald. “The steadfast support we’ve received from the grassroots leaders of Wisconsin’s Fifth and conservatives from all over Wisconsin has been instrumental to my campaign so far. We’re looking forward to carrying this positive momentum into victory in November, and helping to win Wisconsin for President Trump.”
“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 stand with our Commander in Chief and protect our democracy. I’m excited to bring my years of experience championing conservative reforms to our nation’s capital, where I’ll fight alongside President Trump to clean up the dysfunction, get people back to work, and keep Wisconsin families safe.”
Fitzgerald is seeking the seat currently held by retiring Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, the dean of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation and longtime representative of the district. Currently serving his 21st term in the U.S. House of Representatives, Sensenbrenner announced in September of 2019 that he would not seek another term and recently announced his support for Fitzgerald to succeed him.
The campaign has amassed support from conservatives from the Fifth Congressional District and around Wisconsin. Fitzgerald has been endorsed by conservative names from around the state, including 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. He has also been endorsed by conservative groups including Pro-Life Wisconsin, Wisconsin Right to Life, and the National Rifle Association.
