Rep. Ted Poe to Retire; 3rd Republican from Texas to Announce Departure in Recent Days

November 8, 2017

Rep. Ted Poe, a 7-term Republican from Texas, said he will retire at the end of this term. He is the 3rd long-serving Texas Republican, after Jeb Hensarling and Lamar Smith, to make such an announcement since late October. 

 

Poe represents a safe, highly gerrymandered Republican district in the Houston metropolitan area. 

There are now 33 members not seeking reelection in 2018.
