Neylon decides against a run for Sensenbrenner seat

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican state Rep. Adam Neylon says he won’t challenge Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald for an open congressional seat next year.

Fitzgerald announced last month that he’s running to replace retiring Republican Jim Sensenbrenner in southeastern Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District. Neylon had been mentioned among a number of Republicans considering a bid for the seat.

Neylon announced Wednesday that he won’t enter the race. He says the timing isn’t right for him and his family.

Other Republicans still mulling a bid include former U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson; state Sen. Chris Kapenga; Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson’s spokesman, Ben Voelkel; and Vince Trovato, President Donald Trump’s first state director in 2016.

Tom Palzewicz, an entrepreneur and Navy veteran who lost to Sensenbrenner in 2018, is running as a Democrat.
