On Wednesday, House Rep. Bob Gibbs announced he plans to retire from Congress this year instead of seeking another term.

Fox News reports:

“These long, drawn-out processes, in which the Ohio Supreme Court can take weeks and months to deliberate while demanding responses and filings from litigants within days, is detrimental to the state and does not serve the people of Ohio,” Gibbs said. “It is irresponsible to effectively confirm the congressional map for this election cycle seven days before voting begins, especially in the Seventh Congressional District where almost 90 percent of the electorate is new and nearly two thirds is an area primarily from another district, foreign to any expectations or connection to the current Seventh District.”

Gibbs is the 17th House Republican to retire or seek another office ahead of the 2022 midterms, compared to 31 Democrats.

Gibbs went on to say that “[t]his circus has provided me the opportunity to assess my future,” which has led to him to retire.

Gibbs said he is “proud” of the work he has done and “grateful for the opportunity” to represent Ohio.

Rep. Gibbs’s announcement closely follows fellow Republican Rep. Fred Upton’s Tuesday retirement announcement.

Are you again going to be afraid to put what I say TTN? You seem so worried and have the need to approve my opinion, why is that, the need to cancel what anyone comments? How are you different than the other platforms that DO CENSURE OPINIONS? Are you afraid of losing advertisement money? If so, then why back President Trump? My comments have been censured many times and no offensive language was used, I pointed out the truth, THE TRUTH. For your information, I am not even White, it’s not about equity, but equality but do you understand the difference? I don’t think so.

/Dear MLEV, If it is not about equity, then why do you bring out your trump card, RACE? Hate can be expressed in pretty, articulate and intellectual speech. I speak my mind but don’t bother to find out if it was posted as I wrote it or not. I just exercise the privilege offered by any website to “express myself/comment.” If they reject any of it, it is their choice and I accept their offer to participate regardless of the outcome. Yes, even facebook and twitter can and often do block me. They block me by erasing what I write, right before my eyes, always BEFORE I have a change to post it. It’s OK. At least some-ONE got my message. I am just grateful that we still free to express ourselves.

I suspect the “retirement” is nothing more than an escape from the sinking ship of the Democrats and RINOs running for the hills to escape justice. Time will tell the truth.
