Dr. Pam Galloway (born September 11, 1955) is an American physician and surgeon and a former Republican member of the Wisconsin Senate, representing the 29th District since from 2011 through her retirement on March 16, 2012.

Galloway graduated with a BA from the University of Chicago in 1976, and earned her MD from the University of Virginia in 1980. Galloway is a member of a number of medical committees, and was the past Chairperson of the Marathon Republican Party. She was elected to the Wisconsin Senate in 2010.[1][2][3] She had been facing an effort to recall her from office.[4] However, on March 16, 2012, Galloway announced her resignation from office due to health issues in her family,[5] leaving the Senate evenly split between Democrats and Republicans. Galloway's seat was filled in the recall election, which had already been scheduled.[6] She was succeeded by fellow Republican Jerry Petrowski.

Galloway relocated to Warsaw, Indiana where she announced in May 2015 that she would make a bid for the United States House of Representatives and run for Marlin Stutzman's seat in Indiana's 3rd congressional district.[7] As of July 2015 she raised $51,423 in campaign contributions, with $50,000 coming from loans she made to herself.[8][9]
