“I will be retiring from Congress at the end of my current term,” McHenry posted on X.

“I believe there is a season for everything and — for me — this season has come to an end.”

“I look forward to what comes next for my family and me.”

His retirement was praised by many, as his voting record has been strongly criticized over the years.

“Past, present, and future, the House of Representatives is the center of our American republic,” McHenry’s website reads.

“Through good and bad, during the highest of days and the lowest, and from proud to infamous times, the House is the venue for our nation’s disagreements bound up in our hopes for a better tomorrow.”

“It is a truly special place and—as an American—my service here is undoubtedly my proudest.”

“Since being sworn in January 3rd, 2005, I have worked every day to uphold the Constitution and the system of government our founders so wisely created.”

In his statement, McHenry expressed gratitude for his time in the House and his work in upholding the Constitution.

He also emphasized the importance of the legislative craft and mentoring new representatives.
