Former NY-19 Rep. John Faso said Monday he won't seek re-election to the House in 2020.

In a statement, Faso says, "Family and professional obligations will make it impossible for me to wage another campaign, especially since such efforts would have to begin almost immediately."


Faso, who is Republican, lost his re-election for a second term in 2018 when he was beaten by Democrat Antonio Delgado.
