Another GOP Rep Announces Retirement

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) has announced his retirement from Congress.

He released a statement to his constituents signaling his intentions.

Smith, who served in Congress for three decades, is the chair of the House Science, Space & Technology Committee.

Another Texas Republican, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, announced his own plans to retire this week, as did GOP Sens. Bob Corker (TN) and Jeff Flake (AZ). Both senators have been very critical of President Trump.

Here's a full list of Republicans who will no longer walk the halls of Congress after 2018.
