Calif Rep McLeod to retire run for supervisor
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democratic Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod (ney-GRAYU-tay muh-CLOUD) says she will retire after one term and run for county supervisor in San Bernardino, Calif.
Negrete McLeod announced her plans in a statement on Tuesday. She said her desire to represent her community locally where she has lived for more than 40 years outweighed another bid for Congress.
Democrats are expected to hold the Southern California seat.
Negrete McLeod, who knocked out fellow Democrat Joe Baca in a runoff, won in 2012 with 56 percent of the vote. She has served on the Agriculture and Veterans Affairs committees during her time in the House.
Negrete McLeod was a member of the state assembly and the state Senate.
