Long Serving Democrat Congresswoman Announces Retirement

Rep. Anna Eshoo, a veteran Democrat from California, declared in a video on Tuesday that she would not run for re-election to the lower chamber in 2024.

Since 1993, Eshoo had been a member of the House of Representatives, representing the 14th, 18th, and 16th Congressional Districts of California.

As stated in the announcement video, the congresswoman emphasized her bipartisan work in Congress, during which 66 of her bills were signed into law by five separate presidents.

Prior to that, the congresswoman held the position of chief of staff to the pro tempore speaker of the California House of Representatives, served on the board of supervisors for San Mateo County, and represented the Golden State as a Democratic National Committeewoman.

Following a turbulent year on Capitol Hill and a spate of retirements in both the House and the Senate, Eshoo’s decision follows suit.

Eshoo, who was elected as the first woman and a Democrat to the 16th Congressional District, is scheduled to complete the remaining term of her term.
