The greatest honor and the greatest responsibility of my life has been to serve as Wisconsin’s United States Senator.  But I have never believed this was my Senate seat.  It belongs to the people of Wisconsin.  So even though I continue to love this job, the time has come to give someone else the opportunity to serve.  During the remainder of my term, I’ll continue my efforts on behalf of the people I represent.  And I’ll report to you here from time to time about some of the work we were able to accomplish in the Senate.

My best wishes,

Herb Kohl
