Who’s Retiring from Congress? (2019 Edition)


The retirement announcements are starting to flow in.

There are a number of Senators and Representatives who are not running for re-election or won’t be seeking re-election because they’re running for a different position (noted with an asterisk). Notably, the Republicans only have 13 women in the House, and two of them have already announced their retirement.
