Two More House Democrats Won't Seek Re-election

US House of Representatives(WASHINGTON) -- On Tuesday, two more Democrats decided not to stick around to see whether Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi can win back the House majority.

Rep. Rush Holt, an eight-term Democrat from New Jersey, decided to retire and Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod, a freshman Democrat from California, has decided to run for San Bernardino County Supervisor rather than seek a second term in the House.

Those decisions mark the 19th retirement and the 16th decision to seek alternate office.

Democrats must achieve a net gain of 17 in order to win back the House.
