Following Monday night reports that he would not seek reelection, Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) made it official Tuesday in Chicago.

Here is one quote that will stick with us:

I love Puerto Rico, and she’s in a lot of pain. And there’s a lot of people that have turned their backs on her, and she needs to be rebuilt. And I cannot be here in the 4th Congressional District and rebuilding the home of my mom and my dad, where my wife was born, a place that I love so much.
