Robert Jauch (born November 22, 1945) is a retired American Democratic politician. He served 28 years in the Wisconsin State Senate (1987–2015) and four years in the State Assembly (183–1987). He retired in 2015, citing the increased partisanship in the Legislature.[1][2]

Background[edit]

Born in Wheaton, Illinois, Jauch graduated from Wheaton Central High School and then served in the United States Army 1964–1968. He went to University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire and University of Wisconsin–Superior. He served as field representative for United States Representative David Obey.[3]

Wisconsin legislature[edit]

During the protests in Wisconsin, Jauch, along with the 13 other Democratic State Senators, left the state to deny the State Senate a quorum on Governor Scott Walker's controversial "Budget Repair" legislation.
