Deb McGrath for Congress Releases Digital Ad on Insurrectionist Derrick Van Orden

Menomonie, WI—Today, Deb McGrath’s campaign for Wisconsin’s third congressional district released a poignant digital ad on Republican Derrick Van Orden’s ongoing allegiance to Donald Trump, close ties to a casino magnate accused of sexual harassment, and presence at the January 6th Insurrection.


“Derrick Van Orden has proven time and again he does not represent Wisconsin values–from threatening library workers to joining armed insurrectionists. He is wrong for Wisconsin,” said Kayla Hausmann, McGrath’s Campaign Manager. “Western and central Wisconsinites deserve a proven leader. Deb McGrath will stand up to Van Orden to protect our democracy, and fight for the kitchen table issues impacting our families most.” 

The ad includes clips of Derrick Van Orden participating in the January 6th insurrection and proudly standing by twice-impeached president Trump, and can be viewed here.
