Republican Sean Duffy elected to 3rd term in U.S. House

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- U.S. Representative Sean Duffy defeats former Ashland councilwoman Kelly Westlund to represent northern Wisconsin for a third term in Congress.

Duffy is a former lumberjack and star of the sixth season of MTV's "The Real World." He served as district attorney in Ashland County before running for the U.S. House in 2010.

Duffy made news last year with his vocal opposition to the rollout of the federal health care law and his willingness to let the federal government shutdown rather than see the law implemented. Shortly after that, a stranger grabbed at him as he walked to the Capitol to vote on legislation. Duffy  wasn't harmed by the attack.
