In March 2010, Friske announced he would not be seeking re-election in November.
Friske has worked as a deputy sheriff and served in the United States Army from 1979-1985. He is a member of American Veterans, Environmental Education Board, National Rifle Association, and the Optimist Club.
On his official campaign website, Friske listed four main legislative priorities:
- Local Jobs - "the future of our community depends on the growth of our local economy and industries. That's why I worked in a bipartisan fashion to pass the Jobs Creation Act, which greatly reduced government red-tape and made job creation and retention easier in Wisconsin."
- Affordable Healthcare - "I voted for BadgerCare Plus, ensuring all children in Wisconsin will be able to get the health care they need at a price their families can afford."
- Protecting Seniors - "I have always made quality health care for seniors a top priority."
- Our Children - "I voted to increase funding for rural school districts by an additional $3.6 million. I also voted to increase funding for gifted and talented programs and special education; to keep smaller class sizes; and to increase State aid by $524.8 million."
- Criminal Justice Committee
- Forestry Committee
- Jobs, the Economy and Small Business Committee
- Special Committee on Domestic Biofuels
