Duffy votes against 'fiscal cliff' deal

Posted:

Most of Wisconsin's congressional delegation voted for the compromise bill to avoid the 'fiscal cliff.'

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-7th district), voted against the bill passed late Tuesday night by the House.

He was joined by two other Republicans, Rep. Thomas Petri and Rep. James Sensenbrenner, in voting no.

But most of the delegation voted yes, including Rep. Paul Ryan the former vice presidential candidate. He's also been mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 2016.

Overall, the House voted 257 to 167 in favor of the bill.
