Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) today issued the following statement on U.S. Rep. Tom Petri’s (WI-06) announcement that he will not seek reelection:

“This is a huge loss for the State of Wisconsin,” said Representative Pocan. “Tom has been a strong advocate and dedicated public servant for Wisconsin and the 6th District for more than 35 years.  His expertise with transportation and education issues is unmatched.  I have always been impressed with Tom’s willingness to work across the aisle to do what is best for the people of Wisconsin.” 

“Through it all, Tom has remained a thoughtful legislator who has put his constituents first,” continued Representative Pocan. “Congress will miss his independent spirit.  I look forward to continue working with Tom to fight for the best interests of all Wisconsinites.  I wish him and Anne all the best in their next adventure.”
