Wisconsin U.S. House, District 1 (2019 - Present)
Bryan Steil (Republican) is the representative from Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House. Steil was elected to the office on November 6, 2018. He was elected to his first term in the office, winning 55 percent of votes to defeat Randy Bryce (D).
Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District race was identified as a 2018 battleground that might have affected partisan control of the U.S. House in the 116th Congress. House Speaker and 1st District Rep. Paul Ryan (R) announced that he would not seek re-election in 2018, leaving the seat open for the first time in 20 years. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee placed the district on its list of 2018 targets in November 2017. On August 15, 2018, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced that it was adding Bryan Steil (R) to its Contenders list, the second tier of the Young Guns program, meaning he would receive organizational and financial support from the group. In the campaign, Steil said that he would work to keep taxes low and reduce government influence on businesses and education.
In his first term in Congress, Steil was assigned to the Committee on Financial Services.
Prior to taking his seat in Congress, Steil worked as an aide to Paul Ryan and as an attorney.
