California Republican Rep. Paul Cook to retire from Congress, run for county supervisor seat

Rep. Paul Cook (R-Yucca Valley) will retire from Congress at the end of his term and will announce a run for a seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, according to John Sobel, the congressman’s chief of staff.

California’s Republican U.S. House delegation has been greatly diminished in recent years. In the 2018 midterms, Democrats took control of half of the 14 remaining Republican seats in California, which has a total of 53 congressional districts.

Cook’s departure from the 8th Congressional District will mark the latest in a series of other House Republican retirements as the lawmakers have had to confront life in the minority. In all, more than a dozen GOP members have announced plans to leave Congress after 2020, including several in Texas.
