Many Republican Congressmen have decided that now is the best time to leave their positions and pursue alternative career paths. Some have left for family reasons, while others are dissatisfied with Trump’s performance in the White House. Rep. Paul Cook (R-CA) believes that his efforts are better served as a member of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.

Serving in Congress has been an absolute honor, and I’m proud of my numerous victories amid a tough partisan atmosphere. Our high desert needs continued strong leadership at the county level, and I pledge to fight for this area with the same dedication and conviction I’ve demonstrated my entire career.
Cook hasn’t yet provided an official reason for vacating his Senate seat. He won re-election in 2018 with a 60% vote, so he’s not leaving due to a drop in popularity. Perhaps he feels that another Republican should take his place to aid in running the country.
Regardless of Cook’s rationale, we wish him the best of luck and hope he’s successful in his new endeavors.
