U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, who previously announced he would retire this year from Congress, has resigned immediately from his seat.

Davis, a Republican from Kentucky's 4th District, said in a statement that a family health issue has developed recently that needs more of his time and that he would resign effective Tuesday.

Republican Thomas Massie and Democrat Bill Adkins are running to succeed Davis in November's general election.

The 53-year-old fiscal and social conservative has served a district that stretches along the upper tier of Kentucky from the Louisville suburbs to the West Virginia border since 2005.
