Sean Duffy House of Representatives Wisconsin
Duffy, a Republican, was appointed to the position of district attorney by then-Governor Scott McCallum in 2002. In 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2008, he was re-elected without opposition. Duffy took over as district attorney from Michael Gableman, who is currently a justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. For the 2008 presidential election, he was a member of the Republican slate of ten Wisconsin electors.
On July 8, 2009, Sean announced his candidacy for Congress in Wisconsin’s seventh congressional district. Until May 2010, when 15-term Democratic incumbent Representative Dave Obey stated that he would not seek re-election, he was considered an underdog in the campaign. Following Dave’s announcement, Julie Lassa, a Democratic State Senator, entered the contest.
Sean Duffy Congressman
In 2011, Sean voted to repeal the Davis-Bacon Act’s prevailing wage rules for federal construction projects. The 2011 Recovering Excessive Stimulus Expenditures for Taxpayers (RESET) Act was his first piece of legislation. It proposed paying down the federal budget deficit using money left over from Obama’s economic stimulus plan.
Later, this concept was integrated into a spending bill. Duffy has introduced a bill that would prohibit earmarks. When a video from the Polk County Republicans showing a public town hall-style meeting in Sean’s district was picked up by media critics in March 2011, Sean was chastised. Sean was questioned in the video whether he would be ready to cut his own $174,000 pay in the wake of the approval of a controversial state measure that would have effectively frozen public employee compensation.
He stated that he would only do so as part of a broader wave of salary cuts for government employees and that despite his salary being roughly three times the average for Wisconsin citizens, he was “struggling” to make ends meet. On December 22, 2011, Sean and fellow Republican House rookie Rick Crawford (Arkansas) wrote an open letter to Speaker John Boehner, encouraging him to allow the House to vote on the Senate’s two-month tax-cut extension deal.
Sean and Democratic House member Michael Michaud (Maine) submitted a resolution in 2013 calling for the government to take steps to ensure that people have access to both print and electronic information. In October 2015, he was appointed to the Select Investigative Panel on Planned Parenthood. Duffy also backed President Donald Trump’s executive order in 2017 that imposed a temporary ban on residents of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
“President Trump is fulfilling a crusade promise to rethink our visa screening process with the objective of protecting American folks from psychological tyranny,” he said. Sean co-sponsored legislation in January 2017 to repeal the Endangered Species Act’s protection for grey wolves. He claimed that Europe, China, Canada, and Mexico had engaged in “economic terrorism” by imposing retaliatory tariffs on the US in reaction to the Trump administration’s tariffs implemented in July 2018.
