Longtime Democratic U.S. Representative Gwen Moore has won the race for Wisconsin's 4th Congressional District Tuesday night.

Rep. Moore, who has led the Milwaukee district for 15 years, beat Republican opponent Tim Rogers 63 percent to 33 percent as well as Independent candidate Robert Raymond's 3 percent. This was the second time incumbent Moore has beaten Rogers in the race for the 4th district.

Moore is known for voting solidly Democratic in Congress, helping pass the Iran Nuclear deal, the Freedom act of 2015, the impeachment of President Donald Trump and 2020's CARES Act amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Before serving in Congress, Moore was a member of Wisconsin's state assembly, from 1989 to 1992, and of Wisconsin's state senate, from 1993 until 2003. Moore previously worked in the Wisconsin Housing Development Authority and graduated from Marquette University with a bachelor's degree.

Tim Rogers is a Milwaukee resident. He graduated from North Division High School in 1978 and studied at UW-Parkside and MATC.

According to Federal Elections Commission filings, Moore raised just over $1 million during the election. The FEC did not have fund-raising data for Rogers.
