From the Quad City Times:

“Dave Loebsack is retiring from Congress.

A Democrat from Iowa City who has represented eastern Iowa’s 2nd Congressional district since 2007, Loebsack made the announcement Friday afternoon.

Loebsack will retire from Congress at the end of this, his seventh term in Congress; he will not seek re-election in 2020.

“I have enjoyed beyond my expectations serving the people of Iowa’s 2nd District for the past 13 years,” Loebsack said in a statement. “Having grown up in poverty, I never would have imagined having the honor of serving as the voice of Iowans in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

All I can say right now is: Dave, thank you so much for what you have done for Iowa as a whole and the second district in particular. 

There will be plenty of time to discuss his successor. His shoes will be hard to fill.
