Help flip a Congressional seat!

Our help is needed to elect Democrat Tricia Zunker in the May 12 special election to fill the 7th Congressional District seat most recently held by Republican Sean Duffy. Before 2010, Democrat David Obey represented the district for more than 40 years.

Tricia Zunker is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and an Associate Justice on the Ho-Chunk Supreme Court. She’s a long-time union member, an attorney and law professor, and president of the Wausau School Board.

If you can help by donating, personally reaching out to voters you know who live in the 7th CD, and/or making GOTV phone calls (see below), now is the time to step up and help out.

Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District

National Convention Delegates – Next Steps

Fewer people have registered than the total number of delegates La Crosse County can send to the second tier congressional district level caucuses. All those who registered by the deadline have automatically been elected to move on to the Congressional District level caucus.

Each delegate has received an email from the DPW with details about the Third Congressional District caucus which will take place virtually on May 17th. If you registered and have not received an email, please contact
