“As you all know, raising a family is hard work,” he said. “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.”

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin sends its well wishes to the Duffy family as they face the medical challenges ahead. During the fight against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, I worked closely with the families of children born with congenital heart defects. Nurturing these children is a full-time job, and one that takes great emotional strength from the families who love them. I will be hoping for the best for Sean and Rachel as they prepare to welcome their child to the world,’ he wrote.
