BROOKFIELD, WI – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on the passing of Wisconsin State Representative Bob Gannon:

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Bob was an ardent and unapologetic conservative who never shied away from a tough conversation and who always stood up for his principles. He was a fighter who continually held himself accountable to his constituents and was always transparent about his beliefs. He worked every day to make his district, and the state of Wisconsin, a better place, and it was an honor to work beside him as we traveled our districts together for town hall meetings. His presence will be missed, but he will never be forgotten.”
