Rep. Lynn Jen­kins (R) an­nounced she will not seek reelec­tion in 2018, say­ing she plans “to re­tire and ex­plore op­por­tun­it­ies to re­turn to the private sec­tor.” Jen­kins, who was con­sidered a pos­sible gubernat­ori­al can­did­ate, will not seek “any of­fice” next cycle. (re­lease)

Jen­kins’s re­tire­ment opens up a safe Re­pub­lic­an dis­trict, which Pres­id­ent Trump car­ried with 56 per­cent of the vote in 2016, ac­cord­ing to Daily Kos Elec­tions.
