‘NO MAS’: Fed Up With Trump, Top GOP Lawmaker Announces He’s Quitting Congress

Republican Congressman Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.) won’t seek reelection in 2018, several news outlets reported Wednesday.

LoBiondo, who oversees two subcommittees in the lower chamber, including the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee’s Aviation Subcommittee and the House Intelligence Committee’s CIA subcommittee, will become the latest Republican lawmaker whose retirement opens a seat in a potential swing district.

The longtime lawmaker has split with his party on Donald Trump’s agenda, including the current tax-reform proposal and the Republican effort to repeal ObamaCare earlier this year.

LoBiondo joins a number of Republican lawmakers who have announced they will not run for reelection. According to The Hill, he is expected to formally announce his retirement from New Jersey’s 2nd District as early as Wednesday, reported Harry Hurley, the radio talk show host for South Jersey’s “Hurley in the Morning.”

Democrats are counting on retirements to help them win the 24 seats they need to retake the House majority.

A spokesman for LoBiondo’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
