WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) issued the following statement after Congressman Ander Crenshaw (R-FL) announced this morning he would not seek re-election this fall.

"This morning, a longtime colleague and close friend Ander Crenshaw announced his retirement from the U.S. House of Representatives. I am proud to serve alongside a man who has given his life to public service, first in the Florida Senate, and now here in Congress. Ander has been a great mentor, colleague, and friend on the Appropriations Committee, and I, alongside our fellow appropriators, have truly benefitted from his insight and knowledge. He is a tireless advocate for our men and women in uniform, supporting them and advocating for naval assets in Northeast Florida. I wish the best for him, his wife Kitty, and their daughters, Sarah and Alex.”
