WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Tom Tiffany (R-Wis.), who represents Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, announced on Monday, April 25 that he will seek another term.
Tiffany was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives after defeating Democrat Tricia Zunker in a May 2020 special election that was called following the resignation of former Rep. Sean Duffy. Later that year, Tiffany defeated Zunker again, this time in the November General Election.
Prior to his election to Congress, Tiffany was a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly and the State Senate.
A release from Tiffany’s office pointed to “the terrible consequences of radical liberal rule in Washington,” saying “violent crime is surging across the country, with murders, assaults, and fentanyl use hitting their highest levels in a generation – driven by pro-crime, ‘de-fund the police’ policies of Democrats in Washington, and George Soros-funded district attorneys.”
“Instead of punishing China for unleashing a deadly virus on the world – Democrats have punished American businesses with lockdowns, and American families, children, and health care providers with unnecessary mask mandates, unconstitutional vaccine requirements – and for too many hardworking Americans, pink slips,” the release said.
The release also accused Democrats of “(falling) just short of passing legislation to invalidate voter ID laws, legalize ballot harvesting, mandate the use of unsolicited mail balloting, and pour public money into their own campaign accounts” in a “last-ditch effort to preserve their grip on power.”
“The result of Biden’s big government socialism couldn’t be clearer – record crime, record inflation, record energy prices, and record illegal immigration,” the release stated. “America’s decline must be stopped. I look forward to offering solutions to restore America’s greatness.”
Tiffany currently does not have a challenger.
