WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Rep. Bob Ney (OH-18) has made the following statement regarding his decision today to temporarily step-down from the Chairmanship of the House Administration Committee:

“Earlier today, I informed House Speaker Dennis Hastert of my decision to temporarily step-down from the Chairmanship of the House Administration Committee. This decision was not an easy one and one I do not make lightly. I want to assure my colleagues and my constituents that I have done absolutely nothing wrong and I am convinced that I will be vindicated completely at the end of this difficult process.

“Unfortunately, it has become clear to me in recent days that the false allegations made against me have become a distraction to the important work of the House Republican Conference and the important work that remains ahead for the House Administration Committee. My love and respect for this institution and the Committee is too great for me to allow this distraction to interfere with our ability to get this important work done.

“While I am temporarily stepping-down from my Chairmanship today, I intend to continue working as hard as possible on behalf of my district and my constituents. It has been an honor and a privilege to represent the people of 18th District for the last ten years and I have been gratified by the tremendous support that I have received from so many of my constituents in recent months. I will continue to fight on their behalf in the Congress and work every day to maintain their trust and support.

“Once these false allegations have been put to rest, and I have the full confidence that they will be, I look forward to resuming the Chair for the rest of my appointed term and continuing the important work of the Committee.”

Another Pollster Sees a Trump Win

The Trafalgar Group’s Robert Cahaly is an outlier among pollsters in that he thinks President Trump will carry Michigan, Pennsylvania, or both, and hence be reelected with roughly 280 electoral votes.
