As I leave the Senate, I want to thank the people of Wisconsin for the incredible opportunity to serve them, and to represent our state. Serving Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate has been the greatest honor of my life. I have been so proud to work for the people of our state, and to continue the great traditions that run deep here, from the Progressive movement to our commitment to bipartisanship and fiscal responsibility.
Most of all I am grateful for the people I have met as I have travelled to every corner of Wisconsin. Wisconsinites from every community have come to my listening sessions to share their ideas and concerns. What I heard in those meetings has informed everything I have done in the Senate, from working to improve education and health care to strengthening our democracy. Those exchanges have been invaluable to me for the last 18 years, and I appreciate the time that so many people took to tell me what was on their mind, and to help me as I served our state.
Our state has a distinguished history of public service, and I am proud to be a part of that. I am deeply grateful for the chance I have had to represent the people of Wisconsin, and to help bring Wisconsin’s ideas to the U.S. Senate.
United States Senator
