Rep. Paul Mitchell: "I have no intention of running ... again."

Michigan GOP Congressman Paul Mitchell, retiring next month after two terms, recently made a splash when he announced he was disgusted with his Republican Party's false narrative about election fraud and was becoming an Independent.

"I've really struggled saying this because never in my adult life have I gotten to a point that I don't have objectives, I don't have goals for the future for what I what I'm going to do and tackle. But it's time to just kind of take a breath."

Mitchell, 64, has a hobby farm in Dryden in Lapeer County, which includes 28 sheep.
