Kooyenga announced his decision on Twitter Monday morning.
(1/2) I appreciate the inquiries and expressions of support regarding the 5th CD seat. I will not be a candidate for the seat. The strength of our Republic does not flow from D.C., but instead is rooted in families, local communities and ground-up leadership.— Dale Kooyenga (@DaleKooyenga) September 9, 2019
(2/2) I can best serve my Country by continuing to represent my district and conservative principles in the WI Senate, serving in the US Army, by being active in the business community as a CPA, and most importantly being an engaged husband and father to my 4 children.— Dale Kooyenga (@DaleKooyenga) September 9, 2019
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner currently represents Wisconsin's 5th District and is not seeking reelection in 2020.
