Arizona's senior member of Congress, Ed Pastor, announced today that he is retiring from Congress. Thank you for your years of service, Ed.
After 23 years in Congress serving the people of Arizona, I have decided that I will not seek re-election this year. It has been a great honor and experience, but it is time for me to close this chapter of my life and start a new one.
I want to thank everyone who has assisted me and supported me throughout my career. Thank you very much for all of your support.
