Out of nowhere, eight-term US Rep. Trent Franks (R-Peoria) announced last night that he, too, will resign from Congress due to “inappropriate behavior.” Arizona’s 8th District is a safe Republican seat, located just north of Phoenix, including part of the city of Glendale, along with the Peoria, Sun City, West Sun City, and Surprise communities. The astonishing nature of this latest development will cause many people from both parties to begin considering their own congressional prospects. Gov. Doug Ducey (R) will schedule the special election upon the seat becoming vacant.
