The Long Beach Democrat said in a statement that he would not seek a sixth term in Congress, choosing instead to “pass the baton” and spend time with family.

The impact: Lowenthal’s current seat is safely Democratic and will likely remain so even under new lines, though the latest iteration from the state’s independent redistricting commission eliminated one Southern California seat to account for slower population growth.

The 80-year-old Lowenthal is the fourth California House incumbent this year to announce he will not be running in 2022. Rep. Jackie Speier is not seeking reelection, Rep. Karen Bass is running for mayor of Los Angeles and Rep. Devin Nunes will resign at the end of this year to run former President Donald Trump’s new media company.

Every Democrat that retires increases the chances of Republicans retaking the House next year.
