(CNN) -- Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Bob Brady announced Wednesday he will not run for re-election. Brady, who has served in his position since 1998, made his announcement to ward leaders at the Philadelphia Democratic City Committee's headquarters after hoagies were served, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He told the newspaper he is retiring because of his family and concerns of how redistricting will affect his fellow congressional colleagues in his state.
