Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, Immigration Reform Advocate, Won't Seek Reelection Next Year
Rep. Luis GutiÃ©rrez (D-IL) will step down at the end of this term, according to a Monday night report from Politico.
GutiÃ©rrez has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1993, where he worked as a vocal advocate for immigrants and routinely won his seat by giant margin.
President Donald Trump has been a frequent target of the congressman, specifically for the Trump administration's poor response to the crisis in Puerto Rico.
GutiÃ©rrez is expected to announce his intention not to run for reelection and formally endorse Jesus "Chuy" Garcia for the seat today.
Update: GutiÃ©rrez has officially announced his retirement and endorsed Garcia. Video below.
