Republican wins special congressional election in Wisconsin
Republican Tom Tiffany, a state senator endorsed by President Trump, easily won aTuesday in a heavily conservative, rural Wisconsin district.
Tiffany’s win over Democrat Tricia Zunker in northern Wisconsin’s 7th District comes in the state’s second election amid the coronavirus pandemic in the past five weeks. Tiffany will replace former reality TV star, a Republican who retired in September. The district, which covers all or parts of 26 counties, has been vacant since Duffy’s retirement.
Mr. Trump won Wisconsin by less than a point, but carried the district by 20 points, in 2016. Tiffany’s win over Zunker was about 5 points less than that, based on preliminary results. Mr. Trump backed Tiffany in the race but due to the pandemic was unable to campaign in person for him.
