Duffy was also recently named a “rising star of American politics” by TIME magazine, which included him in its “40 Under 40 List.” (More here).

Meanwhile, Duffy’s opponent Julie Lassa who has been trying to distance herself from the Democratic party leadership (and the Democratic party for that matter), took part in a fundraiser today with Vice President Joe Biden and embattled incumbent Rep. Steve Kagen (D). And it appears her campaign was hesitant to publicize the event, which took place outside of her district.

Duffy and Lassa are running to succeed outgoing Appropriations Committee chairman David Ovey (D), who is retiring after 30 years in office.
