LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Congressman Todd Rokita has been serving Indiana's fourth district since 2011. Republican Jim Baird will take his seat next month.
Rokita said he's working up to the last minute of his term.
We asked if he has any campaign plans for the future.
"You never say never, you know?" said Rokita. "What my wife says is the position that I'm going to be serving in immediately is going to be the one of parent, I'm going to get to parent more and I'm looking forward to that."
Rokita said his proudest accomplishment in congress was co-authoring and passing the Every Student Succeeds Act.
It replaced "No Child Left Behind" and is described as one of the largest evolution's of power from the federal government to the states.
"It was a bill signed by a President who I usually couldn't agree what color the sky was with but he signed my bill and that is important," said Rokita.
Rep. Rokita said he would like to thank the people of Greater Lafayette.
"This area kept me accountable, lot of good ideas, lot of good support, but like other areas, they weren't bashful about letting me know when they thought I was wrong on a vote," said Rokita. "So, I'm really grateful for that, that's how it should work."
