Numerous Members of Congress have announced they will not be running for reelection, including former Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) this week.

As of now, 39 Members of Congress – seven Senators and 32 House members – have announced they will not seek reelection.

Of the seven Senators not seeking reelection, six announced that they are retiring from public office: Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Tom Carper (D-DE), Laphonza Butler (D-CA), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Mitt Romney (R-UT). One other, Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), is running for governor of Indiana.

Sen. Stabenow is the chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Sen. Laphonza Butler was appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) to fill the seat of the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

Several House members have announced their intention to run for Butler’s Senate seat, including: Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA).

In addition to those three, eight other House members are running for Senate seats in 2024, including: Rep. Andy Kim (D-NJ), Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), Rep. David Tone (D-MD), Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX), Rep. Elissa Slatkin (D-MI), Rep. Ruben Gallegos (D-AZ), Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), and Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV).

Sixteen other U.S. House members are retiring from public office, including: Rep. Kathy Manning (D-NC), Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Rep. Anna Eschoo (D-CA), Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-CA), Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI), Rep. Mike Burgess (R-TX), Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH), Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA), Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD), Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA), Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-CA), and Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN).

Rep. Granger is the chair of the House Appropriations Committee.

In addition to these 28 House members, another four members are seeking another office, including Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) for Virginia governor and Reps. Dean Phillips (D-MN), Jeff Jackson (D-NC), and Dan Bishop (R-NC) for other state-level offices.

Historically, this number of retirements is about on track with the last five election cycles. Retirement announcements have historically slowed with 6-8 months to go before the election.
