The Democrats must be shocked at his resignation announcement.
“Rep. Steve Stivers announced Monday he will resign from Congress in May to lead the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, giving Republicans one less vote in the House and setting up the state’s red 15th District for a special election,” reports Breitbart News.
The special election in Ohio will be a huge battleground as Democrat control in Congress is tenuous at best.
“For the past decade, it has been my honor and privilege to serve the people of Ohio’s 15th Congressional District,” said Stivers. “Throughout my career, I’ve worked to promote policies that drive our economy forward, get folks to work, and put our fiscal house in order.”
I'm excited to announce that I will be taking on a new opportunity that allows me to continue to do that. Effective May 16, I will be leaving Congress in order to accept the position of President and CEO of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.
