Becerra stays put

Rep. Xavier Becerra announced today that he plans to remain in Congress, rather than take on the job of U.S. Trade Representative under President Barack Obama. Here's a portion of a statement his office put out today:
This evening Representative Xavier Becerra (CA-31) announced his intentions to continue his service as the representative of California’s 31st Congressional District and to devote his energies to the challenges ahead of him as the incoming Vice Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus and as a senior member of the House Committee on Ways and Means.


“Working for and with incoming President Barack Obama would be an opportunity of a lifetime. I will get to experience that thrill… by working by his side in the People’s House just down the street from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."
