GARY, Ind. (AP) — Longtime Democratic Rep. Pete Visclosky of Indiana isn't running for reelection and will be retiring after 36 years in Congress.
The 70-year-old Visclosky issued a statement Wednesday thanking his district's residents for "the incredible life privilege" of serving in Congress since first winning election in 1984.
Visclosky represents a heavily Democratic district bordering Chicago and Lake Michigan. Visclosky has been a promoter of the steel industry that has several large mills in his district.
