Two More House Democrats Announce They Won’t Seek Reelection This Year


Two more House Democrats on Tuesday announced they will not be seeking reelection this year.

Rhode Island Congressman James Langevin (D) announced he won’t be running for reelection after 22 years in Congress.

This is the first open seat in Rhode Island since 2010.

“I have not come to this decision lightly, but it is time for me to chart a new course, which will allow me to stay closer to home and spend more time with my family and friends,” Langevin wrote in an op-ed in The Providence Journal. “And while I don’t know what’s next for me just yet, whatever I do will always be in service of Rhode Island.”

Langevin, 57, did not disclose why he was retiring from Congress.

Separately on Tuesday, Democrat Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA) announced he will not be seeking reelection this year.

I am honored that the citizens of California’s 9th Congressional District chose me as their representative in the past five elections, and that those in California’s previous 11th Congressional District gave me the privilege of representing them for three terms.

McNerney said he will keep working for the people of his district throughout the remainder of his term.

I will keep working for the people of my district throughout the remainder of my term and look forward to new opportunities to continue to serve.

The latest retirements spell trouble for Pelosi.

Tuesday’s two retirements now mean 28 incumbent Democrats won’t seek reelection in November.
