WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) announced his resignation on his Facebook page Monday morning, stating that he recently learned his upcoming daughter, due in October, will have 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 wrote. "It is not an easy decision – because I truly love being your Congressman – but it is the right decision for my family, which is my first love and responsibility."
Rep. Duffy, a Republican representing Wisconsin's 7th District, has been an outspoken supporter of President Trump and his administration.
