WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita Republican Phil Hermanson is resigning from the Kansas House to focus on his new family.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/17ZVCCy ) Hermanson made the announcement Thursday, saying he intends to seek public office again sometime in the future.

Hermanson was married in September to Rhonda Riggs, to whom he proposed on the House floor in May. The marriage also brought him three stepchildren.

Hermanson has been in the House since 2009. His district includes parts of south Wichita and Haysville. He refiled his voter registration Thursday for his new address, which is outside the district.

Republican precinct members in the district will choose a replacement to serve the remaining year in Hermanson's term.
