Roger J. Roth Jr. (born February 5, 1978) is a United States politician and homebuilder.
Born in Appleton, Wisconsin, Roth served in the Wisconsin Air National Guard and was an Iraq War veteran. Roth graduated from St. Mary Central High School in Neenah, Wisconsin, and received his bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh. He was a self-employed homebuilder. He served in the Wisconsin State Assembly as a Republican from 2007 to 2011.
Roth ran for State Senate against Penny Bernard Schaber (D) in the 19th district of Wisconsin to replace long time incumbent Michael Ellis (R) in the 2014 election. On November 4, 2014, Roth was elected to the Wisconsin State Senate.
In 2019, Roth falsely claimed that Wisconsin Republicans did not curb the powers of the incoming Democratic administration during the lame-duck session. PolitiFact wrote, "The lame-duck bills transparently limited Evers’ and Kaul’s power on numerous fronts, including appointments, spending and rule-making. Roth’s claim is not only wrong, it’s ridiculous. We rate it Pants on Fire."
