U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, a Republican who represents Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District, cited a family health issue when he resigned on Tuesday, five months before the end of his term. Davis submitted his resignation Tuesday to Gov. Steve Beshear and Speaker of the House John Boehner and said it’s effective at the close of business that day. Gov. Steve Beshear’s office Tuesday night said they are reviewing the process on how to deal with the vacancy and couldn’t comment further with Beshear away on an economic development trip in Germany.
