Ranking Member McHenry Thanks Rep. Duffy for his Leadership, Friendship, and Public Service


Washington, August 26, 2019 -

WASHINGTON – Today, Republican leader of the House Financial Services Committee, Patrick McHenry (NC-10), issued the following statement after Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance, Sean Duffy (WI-7), announced his resignation from Congress next month to support his family as they await the arrival of their ninth child:

“I remember meeting Sean early in his run for Congress. He was a young prosecutor in northwest Wisconsin with a big family, a quick wit, and Hollywood looks. I became a quick fan then and am proud to call him a close adviser and friend now. Sean has committed much of his life to public service and has been a leader on our Committee, first chairing the Oversight subcommittee and now working in the housing space. But his foremost calling has always been to his family and I have great respect for his decision to step away from his career during their time of need. Giulia and I send our best wishes and prayers to Sean, Rachel, and the entire Duffy family as they begin this new stage in their lives.”
