Representative Tom Latham has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2014.
The Republican representing Iowa’s third congressional district made the announcement in an email to supporters Tuesday.
“It is never a perfect time or a right time to step aside. But for me, this is the time,” Latham said. “I want to share with you my decision that I will not be a candidate for any office in November of 2014.”
The 65-year-old has served 10 terms since 1995.
