Fitzgerald Announces Candidacy for 5th Congressional District Seat

State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has
announced his candidacy for Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District. Fitzgerald
made the announcement this (Tuesday) morning that he is running to fill Jim
Sensenbrenner’s seat in Congress. “The residents of the Fifth Congressional
District deserve another strong conservative voice to represent their interests
in our nation’s capital,” Fitzgerald said in a statement, and points to his
experience as Senate Majority Leader as to why he’s fit for the job. “I haven’t
just talked about conservative principles, I’ve lived them and I’ve helped to
make them a reality here in Wisconsin. Fitzgerald is the first Republican to officially
announce a run for Sensenbrenner’s seat. Democrat Tom Palzewicz, who lost to
Sensenbrenner in 2018 is running again for the seat.
