California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo to Retire Next Year

Rep. Anna Eshoo (CA-16), one of the most senior members of the U.S. House, said Tuesday that she will not run for reelection in 2024. First elected in 1992, she will complete her 16th term next year.

Eshoo won her final term in 2022 by a 16% margin over fellow Democrat Rishi Kumar. District 16, located in the Bay Area, was one of six U.S. House districts that year where only Democrats advanced from California's top-two primary. 

The announcement comes one day after fellow California Democrat Rep. Tony Cárdenas (CA-29) announced his departure. This brings to six the number of retirements across the Golden State's 52 districts. All are Democrats. In addition to Cárdenas and Eshoo, Grace Napolitano (CA-31) is retiring. Three others are running for U.S. Senate: Barbara Lee (CA-12), Katie Porter (CA-47), and Adam Schiff (CA-30). 29 current members are not seeking reelection next year.
