Incumbent Bryan Steil has defeated Democratic opponent Roger Polack for Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District seat.

Steil (R) assumed office in the U.S. House in Jan. 2019, winning the seat after House Speaker and 1st District Rep. Paul Ryan announced he would not seek reelection in 2018.

In 2020, Steil defeated Polack by a margin of 65-35%. In 2018, Steil defeated Randy Bryce (D) by more than 40,000 votes.

“I am honored to have earned the support of voters, workers, and families across Southeast Wisconsin," Steil said in a statement Tuesday night. "As I’ve done throughout my first term in office, I will continue working hard to serve you, be available and accessible to all, and advocate for policies that support Wisconsin workers and families. We have important work ahead of us and I will continue fighting every day to defeat coronavirus, ensure everyone who wants a job has a job, and keep our communities safe. Thank you for your confidence in me."

The Wisconsin 1st Congressional District oversees Janesville and east, including Racine and Kenosha.

Steil was assigned to the Committee on Financial Services in the U.S. House. Prior to winning the seat, Steil worked Paul Ryan aide and as an attorney.
