House election winner likely to finish Gallagher's term

Whoever you choose for the Eighth Congressional District in November will likely receive an extra two months on the job. Governor Tony Evers is calling for two special elections for the Eighth Congressional District (which includes Door and Kewaunee counties) and State Senate District 4 in Milwaukee County. The special election will coincide with those elections, with the winner finishing the remaining two months of the term.


The seat representing the Eighth Congressional District since Rep. Mike Gallagher announced he was leaving the post in April. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Gallagher has joined the Green Bay-based Titletown Tech as a senior strategic advisor. Gallagher’s departure was met with criticism from his colleagues and county GOP organizations because of the vacancy that was left behind. Since he announced his departure, Democrat Kristin Lyerly and Republicans Andre Jacque, Roger Roth, and Tony Wied have all started to court voters ahead of the August primary and the November general election.


Potential candidates have until June 1st to file their nomination papers.
