LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) â€” Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin made the unexpected announcement Monday that he won't run for a third term representing central Arkansas in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Griffin's decision throws uncertainty into an election where Republicans had hoped to build upon recent gains in Arkansas. The GOP holds all four of the state's U.S. House seats, both chambers of the state Legislature and one of its two U.S. Senate seats.
