Two Democrats join exodus from U.S. Congress

New Jersey Representative Rush Holt, a physicist who has advocated strongly for research funding and environmental conservation, has decided not to seek a further term in the U.S. House of Representatives in elections in November, Democratic Party Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday. Another Democratic House member, California’s Gloria Negrete McLeod, 72, also said she would be retiring after one term and returning to local politics in San Bernardino. Forty-four members of the House and Senate have said they will be leaving Congress this year, including 24 Republicans and 20 Democrats. Holt, 65, who has served eight terms in the House, lost a primary race last year to fill the U.S. Senate seat of the late Frank Lautenberg.
