Original story: U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (VA-8th) is not going to run for re-election, Politico reports.

Moran, a Democrat from Alexandria, has served in Congress for 23 years. From 2000 to 2010, Reston was in the 8th District. The 2010 redistricting sent Reston to the 11th District, and Restonians are now represented in Congress by Gerry Connolly.

Moran’s retirement is the second among local House members in recent weeks. Veteran Congressman Frank Wolf (R-10th) is also retiring. Moran’s retirement is the third for Democrats this week: California Rep. George Miller said he would leave Congress after 40 years and New York Rep. Bill Owens also said he would forgo reelection in 2014.

An official announcement from Moran is expected Wednesday.
