Republican Congressman Charlie Dent Announces Resignation 'In Coming Weeks'

Republican Congressman Charlie Dent speaks during an interview at his campaign office in Allentown, Pennsylvania on November 2, 2016.

Republican Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania says he'll resign from Congress in the coming weeks, after the leader of an influential caucus of GOP moderates announced previous year that he wouldn't seek re-election.

Dent represents Pennsylvania's 15 congressional district, which includes parts of Lebanon and Dauphin counties.

"I am especially proud of the work I have done to give voice to the sensible center in our country that is often overlooked or ignored", he said. "It is my intention to continue to aggressively advocate for responsible governance and pragmatic solution in the coming years". Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) made waves last week when he announced his intent to retire at the end of his term to spend more time with his family.

Rep. Dent served as a co-chair of the moderate Tuesday Group.

"Charlie Dent is a voice of reason and civility that breaks through the chaos and partisanship of Washington and he will be missed", Governor Wolf said. While we do not agree on everything, Charlie has always been approachable, and he has always put his constituents above partisan politics.
