David Dreier was one of California's most influential Republicans in Congress and the sixth to retire after his term expires.

The news is not surprising given he faced an uphill battle in a district that lost much of his conservative base. Dreier made the announcement on the House floor Wednesday and also cited the low approval ratings for Congress.
