WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Dale Kildee says he is retiring at the end of his current term, his 18th as a Democrat from Michigan.

In a written statement, Kildee said he intends to spend more time with his wife, three children and 10 grandchildren.

Kildee has been in public office in the Michigan Legislature and Congress for 47 years. He represents the area around Flint.

Michigan's congressional district lines are being redrawn before the 2012 election, as is true in the other states. His statement said he is confident his district will remain in Democratic hands.

Kildee becomes the eighth House Democrat to announce his retirement. Five Republicans have also said they will not seek re-election next year.
