Sean Duffy won’t run for Congress, but is Wisconsin games’ Honorary Athlete.
The Real World Boston cast member Sean Duffy won’t be running for Congress. He tells the Wausau Daily Herald that “his growing family and job as Ashland County district attorney are the main reasons he has decided not to run.” Another possibility: He may have been busy consoling his wife Rachel Campos, who yet again wasn’t selected to co-host The View, and is currently pregnant with their soon-to-be third child. Even though he won’t possibly be elected to Congress this year, Sean has been recognized with an even higher honor: He’s the Badger State Games Honorary Athlete of the 2004 Winter Games. This Friday in Wausau, he’ll carry the torch and light the cauldron during the Opening Ceremony at Wausau’s Marathon Park,” in addition to “perform[ing] various timber stunts.”
