Rob Andrews, a 24-year congressman from South Jersey, is stepping down this month, according to a report.

Citing a "source close to the situation," the Philadelphia Inquirer said the 56-year-old Democrat will resign around President's Day weekend to take a job at a public affairs firm. State Sen. Donald Norcross (D-Camden) is expected to run to replace Andrews with wide support from South Jersey Democrats, according to the newspaper.
