A surge of retirements in Congress is on track to exceed levels seen in the past decade, with nine members announcing they won’t seek reelection in November alone.

The retirements are affecting both parties, impacting fundraising and adding uncertainty to the 2024 control battles.

The unhealthy political environment, internal politics, and a toxic work atmosphere have been cited as reasons for these retirements.

“People are talking about it — more openly than they ever talked about it,” Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) said.

“Like wondering, ‘Is this really worth my time and effort?’”

“This place, right now, I think it’s childish. I mean, this isn’t a place where you attract the cream of the crop,” expressed Republican Rep. Garrett Graves.

The situation is leading to a despondent atmosphere on Capitol Hill, with implications for party majorities and the power of incumbency.
