Meadows has been rumored to be in consideration for a role in the Trump administration and his retirement will continue to fuel this speculation.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., will not seek re-election, he confirmed in a statement Thursday.
The four-term congressman said that he will be retiring at the end of his term.
“This was a decision I struggled with greatly. These last 8 years, I have been so blessed to serve the people of NC-11 and help give a voice to millions of Americans who feel Washington, D.C. has forgotten them,” he said.
The staunch supporter of President Trump touted the accomplishments he has seen the administration achieve.
