U.S Representative Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued a statement saying that he will not seek reelection to the United States House of Representatives.
Camp has represented the the 4th district of Michigan, which includes Clinton, Clare, Grand Traverse, Gratiot, Isabella, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Mecosta, Midland, Missaukee, Montcalm, Osceola, and Roscommon counties and the northern portion of Shiawassee and most of the western portion of Saginaw counties. He was elected to represent the district in 1993, having served one term previous to that as representative to Michigan's 10th district. He is the current chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Camp's statement, which was sent out in a press release, as well as posted on his Facebook page reads "Today, I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the United States House of Representatives. This decision was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family.
Serving in Congress is the great honor of my professional life. I am deeply grateful to the people of the 4th Congressional District for placing their trust in me. Over the years, their unwavering support has been a source of strength, purpose and inspiration.
During the next nine months, I will redouble my efforts to grow our economy and expand opportunity for every American by fixing our broken tax code, permanently solving physician payments for seniors, strengthening the social safety net and finding new markets for U.S. goods and services."
