Representative Bob Watson Not Seeking Re-election

Patrick Laverty

According to multiple sources, State Representative Bob Watson will not be seeking re-election in November.

Watson has been in the General Assembly for 20 years, and served from 1998 to 2011 as the House Minority Leader.

Representative Watson was always known to be very vocal on many issues and was never afraid of a fight in the State House. I'm sure his voice will be missed by many (but certainly not all) on Smith Hill, especially on those very late nights at the end of an Assembly session.

Thank you and good luck Representative Watson.
