GOP Rep. Phil Roe won't seek reelection

Source: The Hill

Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) announced Friday that he will not seek reelection.

"Serving East Tennesseans these past 11 years has been the honor of my life, and I will be forever grateful for the trust my friends and neighbors put in me to represent them," Roe said in a statement. "As someone who practiced medicine for over 30 years, I said I would serve five or six terms because I never intended this job to be a second career."

"After prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire at the end of the 116th Congress," he added.

Roe is one of more than two dozen GOP lawmakers to say they have chosen not to run again in 2020.

1. Minority Snowflakes

Hopefully the GOP will see minority status well into the future. GOTV 2020 to make sure that happens!! (remember, this is a census/redistricting election!!)

3. I hope all of these retirees aren't being forced out to make room

for Trump humpers even worse than they are. The voting on party lines would stay the same, but there are some real hard-core scum bags backing Trump.

My real hope is that they sense a blue wave land-slide coming in the Fall!

6. Yeah, I knew this was coming

Him and others like him go in to make big bucks off of stocks. Just like Frist. Then they get out. It's all about the money.
