Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., is expected to resign his congressional seat. But his departure was abrupt, and one of the consultants said the 60-year-old Franks was resigning Thursday.

The 8th District congressman did not confirm or deny any plans to resign.

He's a strong backer of President Donald Trump and has embraced some of his stances on social issues.

"We will have a statement a little bit later, but that's all I can tell you right now", Franks told reporters after leaving the House floor Thursday. Franks told Roll Call that he would make a statement on Thursday evening, that will "explain" things.




"Half of all black children are aborted", Franks infamously said in 2010. "And if this turns out to be true, there won't be that many people who are surprised".

Franks was seen being comforted in the chamber by several other Republicans shortly before he left the House floor.

Franks was first elected to Congress in 2002 and was reelected in 2016 by a 37-point margin.

Allegations about Franks come hours after Minnesota Sen. But no revelations were aired in the aftermath of the decision, and Franks went on to assume the chairmanship of a House Judiciary subcommittee.
