Rep. Dave Camp announced Monday he will not seek a 13th term, becoming the second Michigan Republican in the past week to announce his retirement.
“Today, I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the United States House of Representatives,” Camp said in a statement. “This decision was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family.”
Camp, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, is the fourth member of the Michigan congressional delegation to retire this cycle. His announcement follows GOP Rep. Mike Rogers’ retirement decision last week.
