Young Announces Retirement From Congress

Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-FL), Florida's "most influential and longest-serving member of Congress," told the Tampa Bay Times that he has decided to retire when his term ends in 2014.

Asked if the congressional gridlock was a factor, Young said, "I'm a little disappointed. It seems there's too much politics. It's a different Congress."

Roll Call: "Young's retirement creates an opportunity for Democrats in Florida's 13th District. President Barack Obama carried the district by 1 point in 2012."
