Hastings Will Retire

Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA), the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, announced that he won't seek reelection in 2014, the Washington Post reports.

"Hastings joined Congress after winning in the GOP wave election in 1994... His seat is considered likely to remain in GOP hands. It went 60-38 for Mitt Romney in the 2012 election."

Hastings is the 18th member of Congress to announce retirement this term, according to Roll Call.
