Mike Gallagher – Invited
Congressman (R-WI)

Profile

Michael John Gallagher is an American politician who is the U.S. Representative for Wisconsin’s 8th congressional district. He was elected in the 2016 elections and took office on January 3, 2017.

Gallagher has said that his top issues are cutting regulations on businesses and simplifying the tax code, improving national security by building up the nation’s military, attacking radical Islamic terrorists and supporting the country’s allies, especially Israel, reducing the nation’s debt by cutting spending, and increasing revenue through economic growth. In April 2018, McClatchy wrote that Gallagher had earned an “unusually independent reputation in today’s Republican Party”, and that he had broken with the White House on issues such as the firing of FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
