A leading pro-Israel lawmaker and the only Holocaust survivor in Congress will retire at the end of his current term.
In a statement on Wednesday Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), a 14- term veteran, revealed he is being treated for cancer of the esophagus.
"In view of this development and the treatment it will require, I will not seek reelection," said the 79-year-old Lantos.
