The Democratic congresswoman will serve her fifth term in the House of Representatives with a decisive win over Republican Dan Sebring. It's her first term in a new district, covering Milwaukee's North Shore.
Democratic Congresswoman Gwen Moore easily won a fifth term in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, despite seeing more Republican communities added to her 4th Congressional District this year. Moore received 72 percent of the vote in her victory over two-time Republican challenger Dan Sebring, a former member of the Navy who now runs a car repair business in Milwaukee.

Democratic incumbent Gwen Moore faces two challengers in Tuesday's election.
U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore and her Republican opponent Dan Sebring freely admit their philosophies are polar opposites of one another. Moore is a proud Democrat who describes her accomplishments as multifold: Being a champion for vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, single mothers, the poor and children; defending against what she sees as U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s excesses on the House Budget Committee; and working to protect the country against financial abuses. “We put together some of the toughest language to try to keep the worst abuses of the financial crisis from occurring again,” she said. “As for the Budget Committee, I have really played a lot of defense on the Budget Committee.
