Arizona Republican Representative Trent Franks is expected to resign from Congress, according to multiple sources including AP, CNN and Roll Call.

Neither Republican operative said they knew why the eight-term Franks was leaving.

Franks told reporters he would release a statement explaining his decision to step down.

Franks' statement is expected to come Thursday night.

"There's been rumors swirling around him for years, at least in 2012", the Republican said.

Franks, first elected in 2002, is a member of the Freedom Caucus and has been known as one of the most outspoken opponents of abortion in Congress, Politico reported.

Franks was seen huddling with fellow Republicans on the floor of the House Thursday, in what appeared to be a prayer circle.

Frank's northwest Phoenix suburb is reliably Republican, having gone to Trump and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, both of whom won the district by more than 20 percentage points, and Franks easily won re-election a year ago.

"I'll let the statement speak for itself", he said off the House floor.

Franks is a congressman from Arizona's 8th district. He is now serving his eighth term in the United States Congress.

Franks was involved in Trump's efforts to oust Arizona Sen. The general election must be held no less than 50 and no more than 60 days after the primary.
