The Hill reports:

Michigan Dem Sander Levin to retire from Congress

Longtime Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) plans to retire at the end of his current term, he said Saturday.

Levin, who has served in Congress for nearly 35 years, planned to make his retirement announcement later this weekend, The Detroit News reported.

His son, Andy Levin, as well as state Sen. Steve Bieda (D), are reportedly thought to be likely contenders to replace the congressman.

Levin, 86, has served for years on the House Ways and Means Committee, playing an influential role in recent years.

Levin was the highest-ranking Democrat on the panel from 2010 to 2016 and was chairman during the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) said in a statement that Levin “will be long-remembered as a steadfast champion for hard-working families in Michigan and across America.”
