The Republican Party of Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District voted overwhelmingly to endorse Derrick Van Orden. After receiving more than 73% of the vote, Van Orden released the following statement:
"I would like to thank our Third District Caucus for their endorsement today. This is the first step in uniting our party and our fellow Western Wisconsin neighbors to bring accountability and our values back to Washington, DC. I will work tirelessly to earn this every day."
Van Orden was nominated by former State Senator Dan Kapanke and seconded by Maripat Krueger, the First Vice Chairwoman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. Former Governor Scott Walker has also endorsed Van Orden’s candidacy.
