Freshman Class of the 112th Congress

40 / 40


Sean Duffy (R-7th District)

About: The former "Real World" star and current district attorney initially sought to oust Appropriations Chair David Obey. But Obey's retirement set up an open-seat match against state Senator Julie Lassa, which Duffy won by eight points. Duffy won a seat on the House Financial Services Committee.

Election Results:
Sean Duffy (R): 52.0%
Julie Lassa (D): 44.5%


Reid Ribble (R-8th District)

About: Democrats have won over the Green Bay-based 8th District intermittently over the last four decades, but never for more than four years at a time. Democrat Steve Kagen's four-year run was no exception, as he lost handily to roofing contractor Reid Ribble, who once studied to be a minister. Ribble has been assigned to the Budget and Agriculture committees.

Election Results:
Reid Ribble (R): 54.8%
Steve Kagen (D): 45.2%
