Last week, House Appropriations Committee chairwoman, Democrat Nita Lowey of New York, said she will be retiring from Congress at the end of this term. And that decision immediately set off what could be a contentious, long battle to succeed her. Why is Lowey stepping down from a position she sought for so long to obtain?
