Almost a Dozen House Democrats Are Not Seeking Re-Election in 2024

Several House Democrats have announced that they won’t be seeking re-election in 2024 and will vacate their seats.

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, over a dozen members of the U.S. House of Representatives, mostly Democrats, are not seeking re-election next year.

The Examiner reports that, so far, fifteen “House incumbents are forgoing reelection to the lower chamber . . . in 2024.”

Of this group of fifteen, the outlet reports that eleven are Democrats and four are Republicans.

The four House Republicans who will not be seeking reelection in 2024 are Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN), Dan Bishop (R-NC), Bill Johnson (R-OH), and Alex Mooney (R-WV).

All four Republicans have big plans after leaving the House.

Banks is looking to replace outgoing Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN).

Bishop is running to become the next attorney general of North Carolina.

Mooney will be looking to fill the Senate seat that is being vacated by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV).

Johnson, on the other hand, has slightly different plans.

He is going to become the next president of Youngstown State University.

The list of Democrats vacating their seats includes Reps.:

  • Colin Allred (D-TX)
  • Ruben Gallego (D-AZ)
  • Jeff Jackson (D-NC)
  • Andy Kim (D-NJ)
  • Barbara Lee (D-CA)
  • Adam Schiff (D-CA)
  • Katie Porter (D-CA)
  • Lisa Rochester (D-DE)
  • Elissa Slotkin (D-MI)
  • Abigail Spanberger (D-VA)
  • David Trone (D-MD).

Like the outgoing Republicans, these outgoing Democrats also have other plans in politics.

Allred is looking to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Ruben is hoping to replace outgoing Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ).

Jackson is running in the same race as Bishop to become the next attorney general of North Carolina.

Kim is looking to obtain Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-NJ) seat, given the legal problems that the senator has found himself in.

Lee, Schiff, and Porter are all vying for the seat of the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

Rochester is hoping to replace retiring Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE).

Slotkin is also hoping to move up to the U.S. Senate, eyeing the seat of outgoing Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI).

Spanberger is running for the governorship of Virginia.

And, finally, Trone is looking to grab the Senate seat of Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), who has decided to forego re-election.

Despite the large number of departures, Democrats still think that they have a good chance of regaining control of the House in the 2024 election.

The polls currently label it a toss-up.

The U.S. Senate, however, is a different story.

Given, the number of seats they are defending, experts believe it will be difficult for the Democrats to maintain control of the upper chamber in 2024.
