Washington D.C. (WQOW) – For the first time in 8 1/2 years, someone new will be representing northern Wisconsin.
Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) announced on Facebook Monday morning he is leaving his post in Congress later next month.
“On September 23, I will step down and allow others to step forward to begin laying out their own vision and plans for leading this beautiful district and the most honest, hard-working, family-oriented, patriotic, and God-fearing constituents in America,” Duffy said in the post.
Duffy said he is making his decision to focus more of his time and energy on family.
“As you all know, raising a family is hard work,” Duffy said. “It’s especially true for one as large and busy as mine. Being away from home in Washington four days a week is challenging and for that reason, I have always been open to signs from God when it comes to balancing my desire to serve both my family and my country.”
