    Congressman Mac Thornberry (TX-13) is retiring

    U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (TX-13) released the following statement:

    "It has been a great honor to serve the people of the 13th District of Texas as their congressman for the last 25 years. They have given me opportunities to serve the nation in ways I could have never imagined, including as Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.
    "We are reminded, however, that "for everything there is a season," and I believe that the time has come for a change. Therefore, this is my last term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Elaine Hays, who ran last time for Thornberry's seat, is considering running. She was for Amash's amendment that would've ended NSA collection of data- which Thornberry voted against.
