The Georgia Democrat’s home in the Peach State is on the market, according to The Associated Press.

A “for sale” sign was posted in front of Barrow’s Augusta home days after the five-term congressman’s loss to Republican Rick Allen.

A spokesman said Barrow, 59, planned to move to Athens, Ga., to be closer to his children, telling the news wire service, “He always made a commitment, after the lines kept being redrawn, to always live in the district.” Spokesman Richard Carbo said of his boss’s living arrangement, “It kept him away from his family for an extended period of time. He’s decided to relocate to his hometown to be closer to his kids and his family.”
