Re-elected just a month ago:

Emerson unexpectedly resigns her Missouri congressional seat

“Our district has earned its reputation for commonsense above all else, and I will leave Congress in February with a heavy heart,” she said in a statement.

Emerson is considered one of the most moderate members of the Republican caucus. Her departure reflects the continued polarization of the House, some observers said.

“This is not a comfortable body any more for people like Jo Ann Emerson,” said Norm Ornstein, a political scholar with the American Enterprise Institute. “So leaving for a good job outside Congress is a logical, if depressing, step.”
