Pam Galloway was a Republican member of the Wisconsin State Senate, District 29. She was first elected in 2010, and was formerly a surgeon.

Galloway resigned her seat effective March 17, 2012. She announced her resignation the previous day, right after the conclusion of the 2012 legislative session. Galloway was all but certain to face a recall election, but said that had nothing to do with her decision.

"My family has experienced multiple, sudden and serious health issues, which require my full attention. Unfortunately this situation is not compatible with fulfilling my obligations as state Senator or running for re-election at this time," she said.[1]

Galloway earned a B.A. from the University of Chicago and an MD from the Medical College of Virginia.
