Florida Republican Bill Posey Will Not Seek Reelection

Rep. Bill Posey of Florida has announced his shocking decision to step down from his position in Congress.

Posey will not seek reelection when his term ends.

The lawmaker took to social media to share the news.

“It has been the greatest honor of Katie’s and my life to represent you in Congress. And, polls suggest that because of YOUR support, I could remain in the job forever, and we were looking forward to another spirited campaign for a final term in office. However, earlier this week circumstances beyond my control now require me to suspend my re-election campaign,” Posey said in his retirement announcement.

Posey did not stop there.

The congressman went on to endorse his finance congressional chairman, Mike Haridopolos, as his replacement.

“There are many people qualified to replace me. Unfortunately, until Mike Haridopolos committed to run, the other declared candidates were not among them. For many years, Mike has served as my Congressional Finance Committee Chairman, while I have mentored him to replace me," he said.

Posey continued, "Mike was, and remains, my first choice to represent you, me, and our district in congress. Without going into a lot of personal details, stars aligned during the past week and Mike decided he was ready for Congress. I enthusiastically endorse him and will do everything I can to help him get elected."

While we may not know the exact circumstances that led to Posey’s decision to step down, we hope that his retirement is everything he wants it to be.

In Posey’s retirement announcement, he also continued to stand by former President Donald Trump, promising to help “President Donald Trump return to the Oval Office.”

Posey will remain in his position until the end of his current term.

Do you think that Haridopolos will replace Posey when the congressman steps down?
