Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, said Tuesday that he has decided not to seek re-election next year and will retire from Congress at the beginning of 2019.
"Today I am announcing that I will not seek reelection to the US Congress in 2018.

Hensarling, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said that he has an array of issues to tackle before he leaves Capitol Hill....

Always thought he was one of the good ones.
Went to a lot of public meetings with Jeb Hensarling. Talked good game but not much to show for all the talk!!!
The Running of the ‘RATZ and RINO’s!
That should be the tagline or motto for almost all the Republicans in Congress!

District is solid Republican, need to find the best conservative candidate.
Jeb has a ring to it but my real litmus test is did you support Ryan and Boehner for Speaker or do you oppose the leadership?
This guy failed it.
Usually means some scandal is about to break.
He has a very powerful committee chairmanship now, but will be term-limited out of that role next year, so probably seems like a good time for him to call it a day. Also he’s a moron.
we are finding out just how betrayed Republicans were by their leaders, just watching Flake, Corker, McCain, McConnell, Ryan etc. has been amazing to see how controlled they are, which can no longer be hidden.
Before assuming anything, use this as a guide. Though it is not to be declared as definitive, it will give a very good comparative.
I knew Jeb in College Republicans when we went to Texas A&M. He was very ambitious and he achieved his dream. He never did anything for anyone else, so I’m not surprised by his departure. He ranked high in the leadership in the House, but only because he served higher leadership. He could have done so much more but didn’t.
Interesting, a solid D.
