Arizona Republican Rep.Trent Franks to Resign Early in 2018

December 7, 2017

Arizona Republican Trent Franks released a statement Thursday indicating he will leave Congress early in 2018. Franks noted in his statement that he is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for inquiring with two female staffers about whether they would be a surrogate for his child. 

Franks' resignation will be effective January 31, 2018.

 

Franks is in his 8th term representing Arizona's 8th congressional district, a safe Republican district just north of Phoenix. Donald Trump won the district by 21 points in 2016.
