Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., on Wednesday became the latest GOP veteran to announce that he would not seek re-election, two days after his fellow California Republican, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Edward Royce, said he would retire.

Issa built a national profile as the chief congressional antagonist to former President Barack Obama and his administration during his tenure as ranking Republican and then chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, between 2008 and 2015. He later targeted former secretary of state Hillary Clinton as she prepared to seek the presidency, over her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
