Cardoza Resigning From Congress

August 14, 2012

Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Calif., announced his resignation from Congress effective midnight Wednesday, the Sacramento Bee reported.

"In light of the fact that nothing is going to happen for the rest of the year, and in light of the fact that (my wife) and I are facing increasing parenting challenges, this seemed the right time to make this move," Cardoza told the Bee in an interview.

The congressman had already announced his retirement back in October, and his resignation this late in the cycle will not trigger a special election for the end of his term, according to the Bee.

Cardoza was one of 19 Democrats who didn't vote for Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader. Of those 19, two have lost primaries and another five, counting Cardoza, are leaving the House.
