WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today released the following statement on Speaker Ryan’s decision not to seek re-election:

“Before I was elected to the Senate I served with Paul Ryan in the House and have spent many years working with him on behalf of the people of Wisconsin. We know each other well and while we have different views on policy, I consider him a friend and have a lot of respect for him as a person and a public servant. This was a difficult decision to make, and I wish Paul and his family all the best in the future.”
