LITTLE ROCK, Ark.
Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin says he won’t seek a third term representing central Arkansas in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Griffin said Monday that he decided not to run again so he can spend more time with his two young children. The unexpected announcement came just days after Griffin said he’d raised more than $208,000 for his re-election bid in the third quarter.

Griffin says he’ll serve out his remaining term but has made no decisions about his plans after that.

In November, Griffin was named to the powerful U.S. House Ways and Means Committee, becoming the first Republican from Arkansas to serve on the tax-writing panel. At the time, Griffin said he wouldn’t run for Arkansas governor or the U.S. Senate because of the appointment.
