California Republican Rep. Paul Cook announces plans to leave Congress

Washington (CNN)Rep. Paul Cook, a California Republican, announced Tuesday that he will not seek reelection to the House in 2020, adding to the growing number of House Republicans who plan to depart in 2020.

Cook will pursue a seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, he said.

"Serving in Congress has been an absolute honor, and I'm proud of my numerous victories amid a tough partisan atmosphere. Our high desert needs continued strong leadership at the county level, and I pledge to fight for this area with the same dedication and conviction I've demonstrated my entire career," he said in a statement.
