(FOX NEWS) – 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.
Ros-Lehtinen is considered a moderate Republican, who has not supported House Republican leadership’s recent ObamaCare overhaul plans and is not a strong supporter of President Trump.
“Illeana Ros-Lehtinen is simply a force of nature,” said Ohio GOP Rep. Steve Stivers, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, which helps get party members elected and re-elected to the House.
“She represented her South Florida district well and she will be dearly missed in Washington. I wish her and her family the best.”
