McKeon Will Not Run Again

Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) will retire and not seek re-election, The Hill reports.

"Democrats are hopeful they can compete for McKeon's slightly Republican-leaning now that he's retiring. McKeon's Southern California district leans slightly Republican, and President Obama won 48 percent of the vote there in 2012. Lee Rogers (D), who held McKeon to under 55 percent of the vote in 2012, is running again and had $180,000 in the bank as of the end of September."
