GOP US Rep. Tiberi to resign by January, lead business group

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A senior Republican congressman from Ohio said Thursday that he will resign from his seat to take the helm of a business policy group back home.

U.S. Rep. Pat Tiberi, who has held the seat since 2001, said he plans to leave sometime before Jan. 31. His two-year term was set to end in January 2019.

"Leaving Congress is not a decision I take lightly but after a lot of consideration, it is the best one for me, my wife, Denice, and our four wonderful daughters," he said.
