Tricia Zunker Seeking to Become Third American Indian Woman Elected to Congress
WAUSAU, Wisc. — If Tricia Zunker fulfills her dream, she will be the third American Indian woman elected to Congress — and the first-ever in the state of Wisconsin.
Zunker is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in the Wisconsin 7th congressional district’s special election, which is required after the seat was vacated by Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin). Duffy retired last September to spend more time with his family.
A Democrat, Zunker faces a challenger, insurance agent, Lawrence Dale, in the upcoming primary election on February 18, 2020. If she wins the primary, she will face a Republican opponent in the general election on May 12, 2020.
Zunker, a tribal citizen of the Ho-Chunk Nation, comes equipped with a law degree and has served on the Ho-Chunk Nation’s Supreme Court as an associate judge since 2013. In 2018, she was elected to the Wausau School Board and currently serves as board president. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and earned her law degree from UCLA.
