His retirement announcement was celebrated by many conservatives online.

“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.”

“Past, present, and future, the House of Representatives is the center of our American republic,” he said separately.

“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 a full statement, McHenry expressed gratitude for his time in the House and emphasized the importance of the institution in American politics.
