Darrell Issa announces retirement from Congress at the end of 2018

Rep. Darrell Issa announced Wednesday he will not seek another term, adding his name to a growing list of GOP retirements that has some analysts speculating a Democratic wave is coming.

Issa, a Republican representing the San Diego area, was expected to be among the most endangered GOP lawmakers in 2018.

“Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve. Yet with the support of my family, I have decided that I will not seek re-election in California’s 49th District,” Issa said.

He won the 2016 election by a slim margin and the district is likely smarting over the GOP tax reform bill that will limit state and local tax deductions, which are significant in San Diego.
