Statement from Pat Kreitlow:
Running for Congress in 2012 was one the most exhilarating experiences of my life, and I’m forever grateful to those who worked so hard to overcome a map that was rigged to protect Sean Duffy from me in his first bid for re-election. In the years since, I have enjoyed several new adventures, and I have been making plans for chapters yet to be written and shared. I have decided that my path need not be disrupted by Sean Duffy’s personal circumstances and/or political calculations. I am enjoying my current roles which allow me to be helpful to as many progressives as possible. I look forward to helping a strong, solid candidate bring a new voice and real representation to the 7th District.
