Re Susa run

Rep. Susan Brooks has decided not to seek reelection in 2020, a stunning blow for House Republicans who had chosen her to lead recruitment in their attempt to claw back the majority.

The Indiana Republican will leave after her fourth term in the House, where she has been a rare moderate voice in a GOP that has veered sharply to the right under President Donald Trump. She has also been a vocal advocate for helping to elect Republican women to the House, where she is currently one of just 13.

Rep. Tom Emmer, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said that Brooks will continue to head up the party's recruitment efforts: "We are full steam ahead."
