Marine veteran and current U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher has leaned on the support and advice of the Wisconsinites and fellow former armed service members on Capitol Hill during his first weeks on the job. After being sworn in earlier this month, Democrats and Republicans alike have reached out to the freshman Congress member from Green Bay to help him adjust to his new role. Rep. Gallagher says while they might not all agree on everything, it is the common experiences that bind them together.
In the opening weeks of the session, Rep. Gallagher hopes to have his voice heard on a number of different issues, including national security and regulatory reforms.
