Kentucky congressman steps down

A Kentucky congressman announced he's stepping down, months earlier than he first planned.

Fourth District Congressman Geoff Davis says he's resigned his seat effective immediately.

In a statement, he said a family health issue needs more of his time.

He originally said he would retire from Congress at the end of the year.

Davis, a Republican, represents parts of northern and northeastern Kentucky.
