Jacque enters race for U.S. Congress

You’ll find another familiar name in the race to replace Rep. Mike Gallagher.

 

State Senator Andre Jacque teased the announcement on Sunday before making good on it Monday morning, telling conservative radio talk show host Joe Giganti that he will run for Wisconsin’s Eighth Congressional District. During the appearance, he touted his conservative credentials, including his stances against COVID-19 shutdowns, border security, and excessive spending. On his newly launched campaign website, Jacque says, “Northeast Wisconsin deserves strong leadership in Congress that won’t surrender to pressure from liberal special interests and will stand up for our common sense conservative values.”

 

Jacque faced an interesting decision regardless of his choice to run for U.S. Congress after the newly approved legislative maps drew him out of State Senate District 1, which included Door and Kewaunee counties, which would have forced him to move.

 

He joins former Republican State Senator Roger Roth, who began his bid hours after Gallagher announced he would not seek a fifth term.
