BURLINGTON, Wis. (CBS 58) – Speaker Robin Vos will seek another term in the Wisconsin State Assembly and will not run for Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District seat following House Speaker Paul Ryan's retirement.
In a statement Vos said in part,
“Since Paul announced his decision Wednesday, I’ve been overwhelmed at the outpouring of support from friends, colleagues and constituents who are encouraging me to run in the 1st Congressional District. While I know that our nation’s capital desperately needs more conservative reformers from Wisconsin, Michelle and I have decided that we can do more good continuing to push state-based conservative reforms. That’s why I will seek re-election in the state Legislature and continue to focus on maintaining the strong, historic majority in the Wisconsin State Assembly.”
Representative Robin Vos is the 75th speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly. He is currently serving his third term as speaker.
