Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) announced she will not seek a 6th term. She’s the longest serving woman in Congress. She was first elected to the House in 1976, and has served in the Senate since 1987. 

"Do I spend my time raising money or raising hell to meet your day-to-day needs?" she said at today’s announcement. 

NPR’s Jasmine Garsd has more on the two-way blog and Brian Naylor will report on All Things Considered tonight.

Note: Apologies, we could only find a #whiteandgold outfit for that 5th photo.
