Luis, Luis, oh yeah, he’s gonna go. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Reports came out Monday evening that longtime Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) will not seek reelection to his House seat in the 2018 election cycle. Word is that the announcement is more of the retirement variety.
Gutierrez became a U.S. representative 25 years ago and accomplished such things as…
Well, he did…
Okay, well he was in office for 25 years. The main thing most of us know Gutierrez for is his frustrating battles with Fox News Channel anchors over the years.
Here’s an example of Gutierrez’s powers of rhetoric:
Enlightening, wasn’t it?
Gutierrez prided himself on being a champion for immigration policy, and he also filed articles of impeachment against President Trump about two weeks ago.
Gutierrez apparently plans to endorse Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, a fellow Democrat, to run in his place in the upcoming election to fill Gutierrez’s now vacated House seat. Garcia lost his 2015 Chicago mayoral election bid to sitting Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel after Garcia garnered enough votes for a runoff with the current mayor.
We’d like to say that we’ll miss Gutierrez, but his smugness in pretty much every interview we could find killed that emotion almost instantaneously.
