GOP Rep. Mike Conaway expected to announce he is not running for reelection

Republican Rep. Mike Conaway is expected to announce that he is not seeking reelection during press conference in Midland. Rep. Conaway has represented the Texas 11th Congressional District since 2005, and was reelected to his eighth term last year with over 80% of the vote.

District 11 covers areas spreading from Andrews, Patricia, Lamesa, Welch, Colorado City, Midland, Odessa, San Angelo, Llano, Brownwood and Grandbury.

Rep. Jodey Arrington issued a statement Wednesday afternoon following the retirement announcement of Congressman Conaway: 

“Mike Conaway is not your typical politician – he has an unmatched work ethic, impeccable integrity, and is equal parts conservative, compassionate, and common-sense. As Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, Mike led our efforts to pass one of the most important and consequential farm bills in recent history. I will always be grateful for the opportunities Mike gave me during my first term and, most of all, for his friendship and the example he set for me and the entire Congress. While this will be a big loss to West Texas as well as our country, I wish him and Suzie all the best in the next chapter of their lives.”

 

In a Facebook post Plains Cotton Growers expressed its gratitude towards Conaway: 

He has served not only his district, but all of agriculture with honor and integrity. Congressman Conaway is a champion for farmers and ranchers and we thank him for his tireless dedication and commitment to ensuring that agriculture remains strong and viable. We wish him, his wife Suzanne, and their family the very best in his retirement.
