U.S. Representative Sean Duffy to Resign in September

U.S. Representative Sean Duffy, who represents northern
Wisconsin in congress, has announced his plans to resign next month. Duffy
posted on his Facebook page Monday that he is resigning September 23rd
to spend more time with his family. Duffy says that he recently learned that
his ninth child, which is due in October, has a heart condition and will “need
even more love, time and attention due to complications.” The 47-year-old was
first elected to congress in 2010, and has been a staunch supporter of
President Donald Trump. Governor Evers will have to call a special election to
fill the vacancy.

Fellow Congressman Glenn Grothman in a statement called Duffy
a “leader who brings real Wisconsin values and common-sense solutions to
Washington” and went on to say that Duffy will be “sorely missed by all of Congress.”
Grothman said he wishes “Sean, Rachel and their children all the best in these
trying times and hope to see them back in the Capitol sometime in the future.”
