GOP Rep. Reichert of Washington state retiring after 7 terms

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Republican Rep. Dave Reichert of Washington state said Wednesday that he is retiring from Congress after seven terms.

Reichert, 67, a former sheriff famous for his decades-long, successful hunt for the Green River serial killer convicted of killing 49 women, has represented a suburban district east of Seattle since 2005. After new district lines were approved in 2012, his district crossed the Cascade Mountain range and added areas in more conservative central Washington.
