BREAKING: Pro-Trump Rep Retires
The Hill reports:
Cook's is the latest in a series of Republican retirements -- 16 at this point -- ahead of the 2020 election.
President Trump won California's 8th Congressional District, which Cook has represented for four terms, by more than 15 points in 2016.
Cook won his last election there against another Republican with 60 percent of the vote.
Cook currently serves on the Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, and Veteran' Affairs committees.
