Dreier Announces He'll Retire

Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) announced on the House floor that he will not seek re-election, The Hill reports.

Said Dreier: "We all know that this institution has an abysmally low approval rating, and the American people are asking for change in Congress, and so I'm announcing today that I will leave the Congress at the end of this year."

Los Angeles Times: "Dreier is the sixth California House member to announce his retirement when his term expires, further shaking up a delegation that has built up clout on Capitol Hill because of its stability over the years."
