Kentucky Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth announced Monday he will seek a seventh term in Congress in 2018.

Yarmuth cited the administration of President Donald Trump as a reason for him wanting to stay in Congress during an interview with WHAS-11.

“The current Administration has shown dangerous incompetence in pursuit of a reckless ideology, and the Congressional majority has, by and large, been complicit,” he said. 

Yarmuth handily won re-election in 2016 with nearly 64 percent of the vote.
