In January, 26 House members will not be returning to Congress. Some of them will return to their home districts for good while some will stay on in Washington for other jobs or to pursue another office. HOH asked several of them to reflect on their political careers and offer some advice and insight for the future.
Virginia Republican Rep. Scott Rigell, 56, was first elected in 2010. He announced in January that he will retire at the end of this congressional term, his third.
