US Rep. Ackerman (D-NY) not seeking reelection

WASHINGTON - US Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY) announced Thursday that he would not seek reelection in November.
The 69-year-old Congressman served as the chairman of the Middle East subcommittee on the House Foreign Affairs Committee when the Democrats controlled the chamber and currently serves as its ranking member.
In those positions, he has been seen as a strong advocate for Israel, although he was occasionally willing to criticize policies with which he disagreed.
