    Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection, making him the fourth GOP lawmaker from Texas to retire in the last few weeks.

    Marchant sent a statement out Monday morning thanking his constituents, family and fellow lawmakers.

     

    Marchant was elected to Congress in 2004 and later became a founding member of the House Tea Party Caucus. He previously served in the Texas State House for nine terms.

     

    While Marchant’s district used to be reliably red, he won reelection by just 3 points in 2018.

    Marchant has not held a Townhall in years.

    What was Marchant going to say when ask about what is his better replacement healthcare plan?  At this time, the Republicans have Ted Cruz’s Health Savings Accounts, suggested as a form of insurance access from before ACA, a decade ago.  That will not be a winner.
