Republican US Representative Issa of California to retire -statement

Issa is best known to be a "conservative attack dog".

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) will not seek re-election this year, which means the Democrats could possibly pick up another seat.

Issa, 64, became the 32nd House Republican to announce that they will not seek re-election in November, not counting those who left the House early previous year.

"Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve", he said.

This year, Democrats need to flip 24 seats over to their control to regain the House majority and many analysts expect more retirement announcements to come.

Doug Applegate, a retired Marine Corps colonel and Issa's 2016 Democratic challenger, had already announced his intention to once again run for office in California's 49th Congressional District.

Issa, who made a national name for himself as an Obama administration antagonist while leading a House investigative committee, will not seek another term, NBC News has confirmed.

"While Democrats fight with each other, Republicans will focus on fighting Democrats - and that's how we plan to win", Stivers said.
