PASCO — Veteran Republican U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings has announced he will retire at the end of the year.
The Pasco-based Hastings has represented central Washington for two decades, first getting elected to the U.S. House in 1994 after beating then-congressman Jay Inslee, the current Washington governor. Prior to his career in the nation’s capital, Hastings served in the Washington House of Representatives between 1979 and 1987.
Hastings says he just turned 73 years old and says it’s time for voters to choose “a new person with new energy to represent them in the people’s House.” He adds that his children, their spouses and his eight grandchildren now all reside in Washington state.
Most recently, Hastings served as chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee.
