GOP state Rep. Adam Jarchow, who lost a bid for the state Senate in a January special election, announced today he will not seek re-election to the Assembly this fall.

“I have a bumper sticker on the refrigerator in our garage. It says: ‘Politicians, like diapers, should be changed often, and for the same reason,’” Jarchow said in a statement.

Jarchow, 39, was elected to the Assembly in 2014 representing a district in western Wisconsin.

He ran for the 10th SD after GOP Sen. Sheila Harsdorf resigned to become DATCP secretary. Jarchow won a bruising primary with fellow GOP Rep. Shannon Zimmerman in December before losing to Dem Patty Schachtner in January.
