The Republican congressman said that a toxic political climate, as well as the recent redistricting in Pennsylvania, led him to his decision.

He represents the Sixth Congressional District, which includes parts of suburban Philadelphia; after the court-ordered redrawing of the congressional map, it will lean more Democrat.

Costello, 41, was first elected in 2014.

Costello filed for re-election last week and if he does not pull his name from the May 15 primary election ballot, the GOP will have only one candidate running for the nomination: attorney Greg McCauley.
