TORONTO, Kan. (AP) — A moderate Republican legislator from southeast Kansas plans to resign Saturday for health reasons.

State Rep. Larry Hibbard of Toronto told The Hutchinson News that he has chronic hives and has to “get rid of some stress.” Hibbard said he already had planned not to seek re-election next year.

Hibbard is a rancher who won his House seat easily in 2012 but faced a serious Republican primary challenge in 2018.
