MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Thirteen incumbents in the Wisconsin state Assembly are not running for re-election in November.

That includes former Republican Majority Leader Bill Kramer, who submitted paperwork Monday stating he was not running. And on Friday Republican Rep. Mike Endsley of Sheboygan announced he was leaving at the end of the year.

Eight Republicans and five Democrats are not running. Four of the Democrats and two Republicans who are not returning are instead running for other office.

The Assembly is controlled by Republicans who hold a 60-39 majority.

Kramer was ousted as majority leader earlier this month amid allegations that he sexually harassed two women.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republican Rep. Mike Endsley of Sheboygan will not seek re-election, becoming the 12th member of the state Assembly to move on.

The 53-year-old Endsley was first elected in 2010 and announced his retirement plans on Friday.

Endsley is the seventh Republican to announce plans they would not run for re-election. Five Democrats are also not returning to the Assembly. Four of the Democrats and two Republicans who are not returning are instead running for other office.

The Assembly is controlled by Republicans who hold a 60-39 majority.

Endsley says in a press release that he feels this is the appropriate time to "explore new options in the private sector."
