Wolf Will Retire from Congress

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) will not seek an 18th term in Congress, Roll Call reports.

"Wolf's decision puts into play a Northern Virginia seat that was only safe based on the strength of his incumbency. Democrats are almost sure to go after it. Mitt Romney narrowly carried the district, with 50 percent of the vote to President Barack Obama's 49 percent, in 2012."

The Hill: "There has been speculation for months that Wolf might retire, given his age and weak fundraising efforts, but his office had insisted that he planned to run again."
