Longtime California Rep. Jackie Speier said Tuesday that she will not seek reelection, becoming the latest Democrat to announce their retirement from Congress ahead of a fraught 2022 midterm election cycle. The seven-term congresswoman from the San Francisco Bay Area said in a video message that it was an “extraordinary privilege” to serve. But Speier said that after nearly 40 years in public office at the local, state and federal level, it was time to step aside.
