Letter to the Editor: ‘Gallagher Has Proven Himself to Be a Strong Bipartisan Figure’

Reaching across the aisle and putting aside ideological differences in order to get work done is becoming more and more uncommon in Washington. Partisan tensions are at an all-time high because of COVID-19, unrest in the streets and the upcoming presidential election.

During these highly contentious times, we need leaders who will reach across party lines and work with Democrats, Republicans and Independents to help the American people. Rep. Mike Gallagher has proven himself to be a strong bipartisan figure in Congress and is the leader Wisconsin needs moving forward. 

Gallagher has constantly reached across party lines since first being elected to Congress in 2016. This past May, he co-sponsored the bicameral Endless Frontiers Act with Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.). 

This legislation solidifies the United States’ leadership in scientific and technological innovation through increased investments in the discovery, creation and commercialization of technology fields of the future.

As a veteran of the Marine Corps, Gallagher knows the value of teamwork in order to complete a mission. He once again reached across the aisle with Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.) to honor our veterans by introducing the Global War on Terrorism Memorial Act, which would authorize the establishment of a memorial for service members of the Global War on Terrorism in the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Since his deployment overseas, Gallagher has never let partisan differences get in the way of achieving a goal and working to help the people of northeast Wisconsin. Although many members of Congress are interested only in scoring cheap political points, Gallagher has been on the front lines in Congress, working with Democrats and Republicans to produce results. 

I am proud to cast my ballot for Mike Gallagher again this year because he will continue to put our country before party affiliation to work for the people of northeast Wisconsin.
