    On Tuesday, state Rep. Mike Tobash, R-Schuylkill, became the 14th member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, and the 10th Republican lawmaker, to announce that he’d decided against seeking re-election in November.

    Since this flurry of retirement announcements began last year, the Capital-Star’s Stephen Caruso has been mapping the districts of lawmakers who have decided that another two-year term in the 203-member chamber just isn’t for them. The map will be continuously updated as these announcements come over the transom.
