State Rep. Mark Radcliffe will call it quits after four years in the Assembly.

The Black River Falls Democrat has announced he won’t seek a third term to the 92nd Assembly District this fall.

“I’ve enjoyed my time (in the Legislature),” said Radcliffe, 40. “I think I accomplished what I set out to do, and now it’s time to get some fresh ideas in there.

“It’s time to give someone else a chance.”

Radcliffe’s announcement comes after a federal court two weeks ago affirmed the validity of nearly all of Wisconsin’s new districts redrawn by Republicans. The map puts Radcliffe and 91st Assembly District Rep. Chris Danou, D-Trempealeau, into the same district.

Radcliffe said the redistricting “played into” his decision to not seek re-election, but the decision was something he and his family had been discussing for the past couple months.

“Even without the redistricting, I’m not sure I would have run again anyways,” Radcliffe said. “When you run (for office), you run to make a difference, and I feel that in four years in the Assembly, I know I made a difference.”
