Spate of retirements continues on Capitol Hill


More than a half-dozen members of Congress have announced plans to retire, resign or run for other office just since Election Day one week ago.

On Monday, Texas GOP Rep. Pat Fallon said he would run for a seat in the state Senate rather than another House term, while fellow Texas Republican Rep. Michael C. Burgess said he had decided “with a satisfied and grateful heart” not to seek a 12th term.

The tone was different when Democratic Rep. Brian Higgins announced Sunday that he will not finish his 10th term representing a heavily Democratic district in western New York. He lamented the state of affairs in Congress.
