Duffy announced his retirement from Congress during the summer to spend more time with his family.

The 48-year-old and his wife, Fox News contributor and Fox Nation host Rachel Campos-Duffy, welcomed their ninth child earlier this month. The baby has a heart condition, which Duffy cited during his retirement announcement in August.

The baby “will need even more love, time, and attention due to complications, including a heart condition," he wrote at the time.

"With much prayer, I have decided that this is the right time for me to take a break from public service in order to be the support my wife, baby and family need right now,” Duffy added. “It is not an easy decision – because I truly love being your congressman – but it is the right decision for my family, which is my first love and responsibility.”

Duffy had represented Wisconsin's 7th district since 2011.
