Kooyenga Will Not Seek Reelection

Another member of the state Legislature is moving on.

State Senator Dale Kooyenga told WisPolitics.com last week that he intended to run for reelection after the state Supreme Court put new legislative district maps in place.

But on Tuesday, the Brookfield Republican announced he’s not running again, citing his three young children as a principal reason. Kooyenga is the seventh member of the Senate to decide to retire or seek another office.

Twenty-three members of the state Assembly are also leaving.
