Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack says he won’t seek re-election when his current term ends.

The seven-term Democrat announced Friday he would retire at the end of his term after being elected seven times to represent southeast Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District.

Loebsack was first elected in 2006, when he beat 15-term Republican Jim Leach in a race still recalled for its civility.

Before being elected to Congress, he was a political science professor at Cornell College in Mount Vernon.
