U.S. Rep. Phil Roe announced Thursday he will run for re-election in 2018.

“When I first ran for Congress, I wanted to lend my expertise as a doctor to the debate over how to improve our nation’s health care system,” Roe, R-Tenn., said in a news release.

“As a veteran, I also felt strongly about improving the care and benefits that our nation’s heroes receive. After being selected by my colleagues to chair the House Committee on Veterans Affairs and to co-chair of the House GOP Doctors Caucus, I believe I can help ensure East Tennesseans’ voice is heard loud and clear on some of the most important issues facing our region and nation. We are making real progress on behalf of East Tennessee, and I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for our country. For this reason I’ve decided to seek another term in Congress.
