He made the announcement during a press conference in Midland, Texas standing next to his wife.

"He'll be a big loss, but all of us have to leave at some point, and I think he's leaving on a high note," Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) told Gray DC of Conaway before the official announcement was made.

The congressman is currently serving his eighth term in the U.S. House of Representatives and represents the 11th congressional district in Texas.

His district includes San Saba, Lampasas and Mills counties.

The GOP congressman holds the position of Ranking Member of the House Committee on Agriculture. He is also a member of the House Armed Services Committee and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Before his time in Congress, Conaway notably worked with George W. Bush as the chief financial officer for Bush Exploration, according to his website.
