“Fairness is My Guiding Passion”

Gwen Moore made history last November when she won her bid to represent Wisconsin’s 4th Congressional District. Not only is she the first African-American to represent Milwaukee, she is also the first woman our district has ever sent to Washington. She won a clear mandate from Riverwest voters in the primary, where she gained 71% of the Democratic vote in local precincts. District-wide, she garnered 69% of the vote in the final election.
