OAK CREEK, Wis. – First Congressional District candidate Bryan Steil scored a victory this evening in his first debate as Steil highlighted his background and vision for Southeast Wisconsin.

Andrew Iverson, Campaign Spokesman: “Bryan Steil showed voters this evening that he is the best candidate, with both a strong business background and vision for the future, to move Southeast Wisconsin forward. Randy Bryce continued to double down on his far-left agenda that would raise taxes on families and limit job growth. Using his background working in manufacturing and education, Bryan will work to create high wage jobs, lower the cost of healthcare and close the skills gap.”


  • Bryan offered real Wisconsin Style Solutions for the First Congressional District while Randy Bryce offered nothing but liberal, out-of-touch ideas.
  • Bryan presented his positive vision for the future of Southeast Wisconsin, including creating high wage jobs, lowering the cost of healthcare and preparing workers for the jobs of the future.
  • Bryan will work to keep Southeast Wisconsin communities safe which is why he has been endorsed by all six sheriffs in the First District.
  • Randy Bryce failed to defend his far-left values backed by his out of state money and endorsements.
  • Randy Bryce failed to address how he would pay for his $32 trillion government takeover of healthcare.
  • Randy Bryce refused to apologize for referring to police officers as “terrorists.”

 Bryan Steil won the Republican nomination for the First Congressional District on August 14 with over 51 percent of the vote in a five-way contest. Steil is running for Congress to fight for American workers and prepare our workforce for the jobs of the future. Steil is a member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and has a strong background as a business leader.
