Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham announced Wednesday that he would not be seeking reelection for Congress, making him the latest member of the GOP to retire.

“When I announced my candidacy for this seat six years ago, I did so with the strongest of convictions. Our national defense had been weakened, our constitutional rights were being challenged, and our economy was in the tank. Simply put — Dianne and I both feared the direction our country was headed. Here at home, the people who live in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District are some of the finest citizens of this country, and we both felt that changes in Washington needed to happen,” Abraham said in a statement.

The article goes on to state the following:

“That’s why we chose to stand up and work towards doing something about it. Our district is filled with honest, hard-working, kind, and sincere people. It is because of this, and because of you, that I sought public office for the first time in my life, when I asked for your support to serve as your Member of Congress,” Abraham continued.

Abraham tweeted:

“Today, I am officially announcing my retirement from Congress following the completion of my current third term. I am forever grateful to the people of Louisiana for entrusting me with their representation in the US House of Representatives.’

Connor O’Brien with Politico tweeted:

“Ralph Abraham makes nine House Armed Services members who are retiring or running for other office, along with:

Susan Davis
Tulsi Gabbard
Mac Thornberry
Rob Bishop
Mike Conaway
Paul Cook
Bradley Byrne
Paul Mitchell”
