A fairly high number of Republican lawmakers have announced that they will not seek re-election after their terms are up.
While McMorris represents the latest GOP lawmaker to announce retirement, there is no guarantee that she will be the last political figure to make such an announcement before 2024 is up.
This brings the total number of GOP politicians announcing retirement up to 2o. Axios reports:
So far, at least 44 U.S. House members and seven U.S. senators are not seeking re-election in 2024.
The incumbents’ decisions to run for other offices or retire have left key seats open, which could determine Congress’ balance of power in 2025.
