During the campaign cycle many of Mike Gallagher’s ads drew attention to the fact that he was a Marine. In the 1970s over 70% of Congress members had served in the military but prior to Tuesday’s election that number had fallen to 19%. Gallagher believes that his path to politics will be very important when it comes to foreign policy issues.
Gallagher defeated Tom Nelson for the vacant 8th US House of Representative seat on Tuesday garnering 63% of the vote.
