Another day, another to Republican fleeing the coupe knowing what’s to come in 2018.

There’s already a decent sized list of Republican Congressmen who’ve stated they’re not going to seek re-election in the Trump era, and now we have yet another to add to the list – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). In a statement released this morning, Goodlatte stated that he’s not going to seek another term in the now blue state of Virginia.

“With my time as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee ending in December 2018, this is a natural stepping-off point and an opportunity to begin a new chapter of my career and spend more time with my family, particularly my granddaughters,” Goodlatte said in a letter to supporters.

Goodlatte serves the rural areas of Roanoke and the Shenandoah Valley, and his district is expected to remain solidly red, despite yesterday’s wins across the state for Democrats, which included replacing Democrat Governor Terry McCauliffe with another left-wing lunatic Ralph Northam. His retirement comes as little surprise, as he was nearing the end of his third term as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, which has a limit of three consecutive terms under GOP rules.

His resignation comes amid numerous others in the GOP-controlled House.

 

The Hill has more:

Two other House committee chairmen, Reps. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), also announced last week that they will not seek reelection.

Hensarling chairs the House Financial Services Committee, while Smith leads the Science, Space and Technology panel.

House GOP conference rules limit lawmakers to only serving up to three two-year terms as committee chairmen. Democrats do not apply such limits to their members.

Two other House Republicans, Reps. Ted Poe (R-Texas) and Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.), earlier this week also made their plans not to seek reelection public.
