Rep. Rob Woodall (R-GA), who barely won his midterm election last fall, will not seek reelection next year, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Thursday. 

Citing personal and political reasons, Woodall, whose father just passed away, said he wants to reevaluate the things he’s “investing” in.

“Doing what you love requires things of you, and having had that family transition made me start to think about those things that I have invested less in because I’ve been investing more here,” Woodall told AJC.

He also said he had concerns about maintaining control of his “message” with the amount of attention the 2020 elections will ignite.
