Emerson Will Resign from Congress

Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO) announced she will resign from Congress to become president and CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, a not-for-profit organization that represents rural electric cooperatives and public power districts, the Southeast Missourian reports.

Emerson was just re-elected in November for a ninth term to the U.S. House of Representatives in Missouri's 8th congressional district.

The Rothenberg Political Report has some early speculation on who might replace Emerson, while noting "it's a very Republican seat."
