U.S. Republicans keep congressional seat in Wisconsin election: New York Times

WASHINGTON, May 12 (Reuters) - U.S. Republicans kept a seat representing a rural Wisconsin district in the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, as state legislator Tom Tiffany defeated Democratic law school professor Tricia Zunker in a special election, the New York Times said.

With 77% of the votes counted, Tiffany was ahead with 57.7% to 42.3% for Zunker, the Times said.

Tiffany had President Donald Trump’s endorsement to win the largely conservative area of Wisconsin, which had been represented by Republican Sean Duffy, who resigned last year.

Zunker had hoped to be the first Native American elected to Congress from the state. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
