SWAMP DRAIN? Anti-Trump GOPer Retiring from Congress after 18 years
Florida Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is retiring from Congress, Fox News learned Sunday.

Ros-Lehtinen has been a House member since 1989 and will not seek re-election next year. She is a former chairwoman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. 

Ros-Lehtinen is considered a moderate Republican, who has not supported House Republican leadership’s recent ObamaCare overhaul plans and is not a strong supporter of President Trump.

Ros-Lehtinen’s congressional district will be a battleground in 2018 for Democrats and Republicans, considering it was one of about 20 that voted last year for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
