Wisconsin (WAOW) — Governor Tony Evers will order a special election January 27, 2020.
The election is to replace U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy who overseas the 7th Congressional District.
If a primary election is needed, that will take place December 30, 2019.
“Our rural communities have been directly affected by unproductive trade wars, political attacks on healthcare and public education, and economic uncertainty because of the volatility we’re seeing in Washington, D.C.,” said Gov. Evers in a statement. “The people of Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District deserve to have a voice in Congress, which is why I am calling for a special election to occur quickly to ensure the people of the 7th Congressional District have representation as soon as possible. I thank Rep. Duffy for his service and wish him and his family all the best.”
