Congressman Dave Trott (R-11) has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2018.
Trott said he had not planned to serve long in Congress when first elected and had decided two terms was enough.
“When I initially ran for Congress, I expressed my desire to serve as a citizen legislator in Washington,” he said in a statement. “Representing the Eleventh District has been an honor, but I have decided not to seek reelection in 2018. This was not an easy decision, but after careful consideration, I have decided that the best course for me is to spend more time with my family and return to the private sector.”
Trott is not resigning the seat and said he plans to continue working through the end of his term.
