Rep. Bishop may change his mind about retiring and run again
The longtime Republican congressman tells the Deseret News on Thursday that he’s considering running for another term and plans to announce his decision at the end of July.
He says several people have asked him to say on for “maybe one or two cycles,” and potential candidates to replace him in the 1st District have said they’d rather run in four years rather than in 2020.
First elected in 2002, Bishop has said he would retire in 2020, in when his service in committee leadership is exhausted under GOP rules. Bishop has served as chairman of the powerful House Natural Resources Committee, and is now its ranking member.
