Van Hollen Statement on Hooleys Decision Not to Seek Re-Election
Chairman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on Congresswoman Darlene Hooleys (OR-05) decision to not seek re-election:
"For more than a decade, Congresswoman Darlene Hooley has been a powerful voice for Oregons families, our troops, and our veterans. Her work to protect identity theft victims, curb the problem with methamphetamines, and to ensure our troops and veterans receive benefits that are worthy of their sacrifice is a proud legacy. We will miss her dedication, friendship, and most of all her leadership in Congress. We are confident that a Democrat will win this seat and continue to work to change the direction of the country.
On behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, we wish Congresswoman Darlene Hooley our best wishes.
