On November 2, 2010, Duffy won the race in a nationwide wave of Republicans being elected to Congress.

Congressman Sean Duffy
Sean voted to eliminate Davis-Bacon Act prevailing wage requirements for federal projects in 2011

Duffy also introduced a resolution to ban earmarks.
Sean was criticized when a video published by the Polk County Republicans, showing a public town hall-style meeting in his district, was picked up by media commentators in March 2011. In the video, made in the wake of the passage of a controversial state bill which would have effectively frozen the salaries of state employees, Sean was asked about whether he would be willing to cut his own $174,000 salary. He responded that he would only be willing to do so as part of a general round of salary cuts for government employees, and also insisted that he was “struggling” to get by, despite his salary being nearly three times the average for Wisconsin residents.
Sean and fellow GOP House freshman Rick Crawford (Arkansas), published an open letter to Speaker Boehner on December 22, 2011, urging the leader to allow the House to vote on the Senate’s two-month tax cut extension compromise.

Sean co-sponsored legislation in January 2017 that would end the protection for grey wolves in the Endangered Species Act.
