Polack will face Republican incumbent Bryan Steil in the November election.

Polack served as a civilian intelligence official in Afghanistan. After earning a law degree, Polack worked on national security concerns at the Treasury Dept. 

Steil--of Janesville--is completing his first term after having taken over for Paul Ryan.
