    Another House Republican announces retirement as more lawmakers eye the exits – By Cami Mondeaux (Washington Examiner) / Jan 8, 2024

    Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-IN) won’t seek reelection to the House next year, making him the latest House Republican to retire from his seat as a growing number of lawmakers consider other jobs in government or an exit from politics altogether.

    Bucshon announced his resignation in a statement on Monday, making him the 39th House member to say he won’t run for another term after his current one expires next January. However, unlike some of his colleagues, the seven-term Republican said his decision was not made in response to “disputes” among lawmakers.

    “Recent disputes in Congress and difficulties advancing policy on behalf of the American people have not soured my faith in our Constitutional Republican form of government. In fact, it has strengthened that faith,” he wrote in a statement. “Throughout the history of the United States, one of our strengths has always been the ability of our elected leaders — and the American people — to debate the issues in a public forum, and then ultimately find common ground and compromise on solutions that benefit the American people. It is still true today and this principle always prevails.”
