Florida GOP Rep. Rooney says he won't seek reelection

Source: The Hill

Republican Rep. Francis Rooney (Fla.), who this week refused to rule out impeaching President Trump, announced Saturday that he won't seek reelection.

Rooney revealed his decision in a Fox News interview. A spokesman for Rooney confirmed to The Hill that the lawmaker won't run for a third-term.

"I don't think I really do and I don't think I really want one," Rooney said in the interview when asked if he needed a third term.

Rooney said he came to Congress to secure money for Everglades projects and for an offshore drilling ban to protect Florida.

3. He supports an offshore drilling ban for Florida?

So does that mean he supports similar environmental protections for other places, or just his immediate area?

I'm pretty sure I know the answer.

7. I believe Trump won his district by 22 points.


So not likely that we can flip his seat.

8. I don't think Trump really has the support he had in 2016.

He has a rabid base, but I don't think it's as big as many think, and I honestly believe that some former supporters are turning on him.
