Arizona Rep. Trent Franks to resign
Franks said he expected to make a statement Thursday.

Franks' statement is expected to come Thursday night. Al Franken's high-profile resignation earlier on Thursday.

Frank's 8th District in Arizona backed President Donald Trump by 21 points in 2016.

Before winning election to Congress, he served in the Arizona legislature and founded the Arizona Family Research Institute, an organization associated with Dr. James Dobson's "Focus on the Family".
"As he walked past reporters outside the floor of the House of Representatives, Franks said: "I'll let the statement speak for itself". The institute advocates for policies created to protect children and families.
