The First House Retirement of 2019 Is Big

Rob Woodall said Thursday he won't run again in Georgia after being narrowly reelected.

Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Ga., joined at left by Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., responds to statements by Democrats on the House Rules Committee about political motivations as lawmakers work on the creation of a special select committee to investigate the attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the ambassador and three other Americans, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, May 7, 2014. House Republicans on Wednesday moved toward an election-year special investigation of the deadly attack, brushing aside Democratic concerns over the panel's scope and composition. The Obama administration, meanwhile, accused Republicans of "political motivation" after they issued a fundraising email linked to the Benghazi probe.
