Florida Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is retiring from Congress, Fox News learned Sunday.
Ros-Lehtinen has been a House member since 1989 and will not seek re-election next year. She is a former chairwoman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
The Congresswoman explained her decision in an interview with The Miami Herald on Sunday. She called it “a personal decision based on personal considerations.”
“The most difficult challenge is not to simply keep winning elections; but rather the more difficult challenge is to not let the ability to win define my seasons.”
