Duffy to step down from 7th Congressional District seat
MARSHFIELD – United States Representative Sean Duffy, 47, will step down from his seat in Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District effective Sept. 23.
In Facebook post Duffy said, “After eight and a half years, the time has come for me to focus more on the reason we fight these battles – family.
“As you all know, raising a family is hard work. 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.
“Recently, we’ve learned that our baby, due in late October, will need even more love, time, and attention due to complications, including a heart condition. With much prayer, I have decided that this is the right time for me to take a break from public service in order to be the support my wife, baby and family need right now.”
Duffy was elected to the seat in Nov. 2010.
