Texas Rep. Joe Barton says he will not seek re-election

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - Texas Republican Rep. Joe Barton says he will not seek re-election after nude photo of him was posted on social media.

The press release reads:

As a young Congressman, my slogan was "listening to you in Texas, working for you in Washington." For me that was never just a saying, but a commitment - a way of life. Over the last thirty three years, I have held thousands of public meetings and visited with so many great people in Texas on issues important to them. In Washington, I have voted over 20,000 times on the House Floor to hopefully make life a little better for the people in the 6th District. 

I am very proud of my public record and the many accomplishments of my office. It has been a tremendous honor to represent the 6th District of Texas for over three decades, but no it is time to step aside and let there be a new voice.

I am announcing today that I will not seek reelection in 2018. To the people of the 6th District, thank you for your support and friendship.
