Congresswoman Linda Sanchez released the following statement today in response to the announcement by Congressman Dennis Cardoza (CA-18) that he will retire at the end of the 112th Congress.
"During his 20 year career in elected office, Congressman Cardoza worked tirelessly on behalf of his constituents and California. Dennis brought a common sense approach to Congress, and he consistently reached across the aisle to work towards achieving bipartisan agreement on an array of issues.
"His retirement is a great loss to Congress and the California congressional delegation. I thank him for his service to our country and wish him and his family the best."
