Latham Will Not Run Again

Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), a top ally of Speaker John Boehner, became the third member of Congress to announce his retirement today, Roll Call reports.

The Hill: "His retirement comes as a surprise -- just a year ago he'd defeated fellow Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa) in a hotly contested race, and had turned down national Republicans' pleas to run for an open Senate seat."

President Obama carried the district in 2012 by over four points.
