State Treasurer Candidate Travis Hartwig Engaged to Longtime Sweetheart


(Milwaukee) — State Treasurer Candidate Travis Hartwig took a break from the campaign trail to propose to his long-time girlfriend Taylor Zusy. While up north during the busy 4th of July campaign stretch, Hartwig found time to share the moment with both of their immediate families.

“She is the most amazing person that I have ever known. She’s smart, beautiful, funny, and makes me a better person. Her smile can light up a room!” Hartwig stated. “We met back in 2015, volunteering for the College Republicans on the way to the presidential debate in Milwaukee. Here we are, three years later, and our adventures are just beginning.”

In November of 2015, Travis and Taylor rode together in Travis’s car on the way to the Presidential Debate in downtown Milwaukee where they volunteered together as part of their involvement in the Carroll College Republicans.

Hartwig went on to say “Taylor is my partner in everything I do. Since we started this campaign, she has made phone calls, knocked doors, collected signatures, and supported me through the highs and lows of the campaign. I wouldn’t be here without her.”

A primary for the Republican nomination for State Treasurer will be held Tuesday, August 14. The general election will be Tuesday, November 6.

Hartwig, who grew up in East Troy, holds a double major in Finance & Business Economics from Carroll University. He was a Mutual Fund Administrator at U.S. Bank Fund Services in downtown Milwaukee and owns a home in Oak Creek, WI.

Travis Hartwig is running for State Treasurer as a life-long conservative that believes Wisconsin taxpayers need a watchdog. He will use his experience to make the office more efficient and find ways to cut government spending because he believes that you do a better job of spending your hard-earned money than the government does.
