Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure /zigman2/quotes/200238288/composite PAVE -1.77% Committee, on Wednesday said he wouldn't seek re-election in the 2022 race for his seat, after serving 36 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. The congressman's decision comes as Republicans are aiming to take back control of the narrowly held Senate and House in November's midterm elections. "It's time for me to pass the baton to the next generation so I can focus on my health and well-being," said DeFazio, 74, in a statement . A spokeswoman for the National Republican Congressional Committee said House committee chairs "don't retire unless they know their majority is gone."
