WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-NJ) will resign from Congress in February to take a job with a prominent Philadelphia law firm, a source close to the situation said Tuesday morning.

Andrews, in his 24th year in the House, will resign around President’s Day weekend, the source said. He will take over a public affairs job at the firm, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and did not want to name the firm in advance of Andrews’ announcement.

Andrews has a press conference scheduled at 11:30 a.m. at his Haddon Heights, N.J., office.
