Candidate Profile |
Sean Duffy won election to Congress in November 2010, defeating Democratic state Sen. Julie Lassa with 52 percent of the vote. He landed a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, serving on the panel's Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit; and Insurance, Housing, and Community Opportunity subcommittees. He also secured a spot on the House Joint Economic Committee. He faces former Democratic state Sen. Pat Kreitlow in the November 2012 general election.
Duffy co-sponsored a bill that cleared the way for construction of a new four-lane bridge spanning the St. Croix River between Minnesota and Wisconsin. President Barack Obama signed the measure into law in March 2012.
He introduced a bill that would halt economic stimulus payments and redirect any unobligated stimulus dollars toward paying down the national debt. He introduced another bill that would repeal the 2010 health care reform measure, which was Obama's signature legislation.
