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.
