Conservative Arizona Rep. Trent Franks resigning

Republican Rep. Trent Franks from Arizona, according to reports from Roll Call, is expected to resign over allegations of "inappropriate behavior".

"The statement will explain", he said.

Franks' expected resignation was initially reported by Roll Call.

"There's been rumors swirling around him for years, at least in 2012", the Republican said.

The congressman serves on the Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee, in addition to be a member of the House Freedom Caucus.

Franks' office said he will make an announcement soon.

Representing a solidly-Republican swath of Arizona, north of Phoenix, Franks built a reputation as a hard-line conservative since joining Congress in 2003.

Asked for comment as he left the floor, Franks said, "I'll let the statement speak for itself".

Franks was first elected in 2002 and considered a 2012 Senate bid before deciding against it. He made his fortune in the oil business and also founded a socially conservative think tank.

Franks is a Congressman for Arizona's District 8.

Obviously, this news (if true) is incredibly shocking and came out of relatively nowhere compared to Sen.

The governor is required to establish the date of the primary election within 72 hours of the seat being officially vacated.
