    GOP's Yoho announces retirement from Congress

    GOP's Yoho announces retirement from Congress | TheHill

    Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) announced he will not seek reelection on Tuesday, citing his pledge to only serve four terms in Congress.

    I believed when I ran on term limits. I ran on a pledge to serve four terms eight years and come home," he said. "Many told me I was naive and they're probably right. I was told the district has changed three times and so the pledge isn't binding and I could rationalize that. However, I truly believe a person's word is their bond and should live up to their word."

    If he came to Colorado and ran for the Senate, I'd vote for him. We need more men/women of their word in both houses of Congress.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.
