Rep. Duffy not allowed in Labor Day parade in Wausau

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Newsline 9 has learned Rep. Sean Duffy has been told he is not allowed in this year's Labor Day parade in Wausau.

Duffy's office received that news earlier this week from parade organizers. His office was also told no Republicans will be allowed this year.

The parade is sponsored by the Marathon County Labor Council. A Wausau city spokeswoman said the city does not contribute any money to the parade.

Duffy's chief of staff, Brandon Moody, released a statement to Newsline 9:

"Having walked in this parade in past years, Congressman Duffy was hoping that for a moment, we could set our differences aside and simply have some fun in a family-friendly event."

Newsline 9 has tried for several days to contact the parade's organizers for comment, but they have not returned any of our phone calls or email messages.
