“With over 70 percent of Americans disapproving of the job Republicans are doing leading Congress, it’s no surprise that Congressman Ribble doesn’t want to face the voters in 2016.
“During his six years in Washington, Ribble supported massive tax breaks for big corporations and the wealthy, voted for a right-wing plan that would essentially end Medicare, and protected companies that ship American jobs overseas.
“Ribble’s retirement from this swing district represents a tremendous opportunity for Democrats in 2016. In the coming weeks, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will be working with local leaders and grassroots activists to recruit and support a top notch candidate to represent the 8th Congressional District.”
