Republican Rep. Bill Johnson of Ohio is resigning from Congress on January 21 to become the president of Youngstown State University, further reducing the House GOP majority.

His appointment has faced criticism, and with Johnson’s departure, the House Republicans will be left with 219 members.

“Bill submitted his official resignation from Congress today, effective at the end of day on January 21, 2024, paving the way for him to begin his presidency this month,” Michael Peterson, chair of the school’s board of trustees, wrote.

This will make it increasingly challenging for the GOP to pass their proposals, especially as Democrats control the Senate and the White House.

Additionally, the party may face further reduction in majority due to upcoming special elections and potential expulsion of Rep. Matt Gaetz.
