Congressional career

2006 elections

In 2006, Republicans nominated Mike Erickson to face Hooley in her November 2006 bid for reelection. (See U.S. congressional elections in 2006) [1] Hooley retained her seat.


On February 7, 2008, Hooley announced she would not seek reelection in 2008, and would retire at the end of her term. She said that demands of 23 years in public service were a factor in her decision, noting that "At some point in everybody's life you have to decide, how much longer do I want to do this?"[2]
