Source: Courier-Journal

Republican U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis of Kentucky resigned Tuesday, citing a family health issue.

Davis had previously announced he would retire this year from Congress. He said in a statement issued Tuesday that a family health issue had developed recently that needs more of his time.

“As a result, I cannot continue to effectively fulfill my obligations to both my office and my family,” he said. “Family must and will come first.”
