Bill Feehan steps down as La Crosse County Republican Party chair
The chair of the La Crosse County Republican Party is stepping down, after a decade
in that post.
Bill Feehan has been serving both as chair of the county party, and head of the 3rd Congressional District GOP.
Feehan said on his “Fact Check” podcast Wednesday, he’s decided to concentrate solely on the 3rd District position.
Feehan has served as chair of the county party for 11 years. He notes that 2016 was a big year for the area GOP, when they started winning some traditionally Democratic seats in western Wisconsin, including Patrick Testin and Treig Pronschinske
And in 2016, Donald Trump won Wisconsin in the presidential race. Feehan, however, pointed out that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers took the 3rd District last fall, so it’s still a “swing” area.
Asked about the most significant local political events that have occurred while he was county chair, Feehan pointed to Derrick Van Orden becoming the 3rd District’s first GOP US House Rep. in 26 years, as well as the election of more Republicans to the La Crosse County Board.

What a LOSER! He got 21 people to run for local office in 2022 and 3 of them won. Now maybe actual conservatives will join this club.
