Congressman Tim Griffin Not Seeking 3rd Term

Second District Cong. Tim Griffin (R) says he will not seek a third term in the U.S. House of Representatives, citing his young family as his primary reason.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- According to Talk Business, Arkansas Second District Congressman Tim Griffin (R) says he will not seek a third term in the U.S. House of Representatives, saying he'd like to focus on his family.

Congressman Griffin told Talk Business Arkansas, “God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Elizabeth, and two precious children, and for several months Elizabeth and I have been discussing whether to seek a third term in Congress, especially considering the formative ages of Mary Katherine and John. It has been an agonizing and difficult decision involving much prayer, thought and discussion. We have decided that now is the time for me to focus intently on my top priority, my family, as Elizabeth and I raise our two young children. To that end, I will not seek re-election to a third term. I will complete my second term, but I have made no decision as to my plans after Congress except that I will continue in public service, including as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserve."

Griffin was elected in 2010.
