Huffman Won’t Seek Reelection In 2018

Oregon State 59th District Representative John Huffman says he will not seek re-election in 2018.  The Republican from The Dalles says he is seeking a federal appointment to oversee the state’s U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development programs, and if that happens he will step aside from the House position before his term ends.  But Huffman adds he won’t seek reelection regardless of whether he is appointed or not.  Huffman was appointed to the seat in 2007 and won election for the first time in 2008.
