“It is going to be the primary time in 28 years that I’m not on the poll,” Cárdenas informed the Los Angeles Times. “The reality of the matter is I assumed I may do that only for just a few years… I’m simply on the age the place I’ve sufficient power and expertise to perhaps do one thing [different] and have one other chapter of a profession the place I don’t should go to Washington, D.C., 32 weeks out of the yr.”

Excerpt from the Los Angeles Times:
Tony Cárdenas (D-Pacoima) is not going to search reelection in 2024, establishing what may turn into a contested race for his closely Democratic San Fernando Valley-based seat.
Cárdenas, 60, who was the primary Latino to characterize the district, informed The Instances he plans to go away Washington on the finish of his time period, capping three a long time in public workplace.
Cárdenas’ announcement is unlikely to threaten Democrats’ quest to reclaim the Home majority. His district, which spans a lot of the San Fernando Valley, is solidly blue. However his departure creates alternatives for bold younger Democrats from the Los Angeles space to come back to Washington. Cárdenas is backing Luz Rivas, a state Assemblymember who informed The Instances she would run to interchange him.
Final week long-serving Democrat Rep. Dan Kildee (MI) announced he received’t be in search of reelection in 2024.
