MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Four lawmakers with a combined 94 years of experience retiring from the state Senate say there needs to be more compromise in politics.

In their final speeches Tuesday on the Senate’s last planned session day Tuesday, the three Democrats and one Republican talked of the need for lawmakers to be less partisan.

The retiring senators are Democrats Bob Jauch, of Poplar, Tim Cullen, of Janesville, and John Lehman (LAY-mun), of Racine. One Republican, Dale Schultz, of Richland Center, is also not running again.

Jauch says he hopes the Senate returns to its roots as a “place where moderation is the mainstream.”

Jauch and Schultz both have spent 32 years in the Legislature. Cullen has served 16 years and Lehman has served 14. Lehman is running for lieutenant governor.
