MADISON, WI — Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy delivered his farewell speech to Congress Thursday.
The Republican announced he would step down early to spend more time with his family.
His 9th child is expected to be born with a heart condition.
In his farewell speech, Duffy touted the jobs and economy in Wisconsin.
He said he’s proud of the work he’s done in a time where he says many feel Congress isn’t accomplishing much.
As he steps down, Duffy says Congress must fight against socialism, and continue with the opportunity and prosperity the country was founded on.
“As I step out of this well, with a grateful, and it might not be obvious, but a happy heart, I want to thank my colleagues for their friendship, I want to thank the great state of Wisconsin for their trust. I want to thank my whole family for their support, and I want to thank god God for his blessings and for this opportunity and the wisdom to know when my time is up,” Duffy said.
While he delivered his farewell speech Thursday, his official last day is on Monday.
