Complete List of Retiring Dems

Complete List of Retiring Dems

Democrats are running scared, retiring from the House of Representatives in droves rather than face a tough reelection battle.

As Joe Biden’s policies continue to fail, both in Congress and in the courts, Democrats are looking at their chances in the midterms and realizing that they are likely to lose both the House and the Senate. Rather than face those losses, many in the House are choosing to retire, or run for other offices.

The Democrats are already at a disadvantage. Typically, the party that holds the presidency loses control of Congress in the first midterm election. According to PolitiFact, since the Roosevelt era, the president’s party has only gained seats in the House and Senate during the midterm elections twice: in 1934 and 2002.

With those odds, combined with the recent Quinnipiac University poll showing that Joe Biden’s approval rating is at a record low of only 33%, a total of 28 Democrats are jumping ship.

“With failed records on every front, it’s no surprise Democrats are flooding the exits,” said Calvin Moore, communications director for GOP super PAC Congressional Leadership Fund.

“Nobody wants to run as a House Democrat this cycle because all Democrats’ majority has given the American people is higher prices, skyrocketing crime, and open borders,” says Mike Berg, the spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, the group responsible for helping Republican incumbents and winning back the House majority.

The 20 Democrats who have chosen to retire are:

  • Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX)
