Several Republican congressmen have recently announced their retirement, with some attributing their decisions to the acrimonious nature of Washington and the appeal of new opportunities.

The timing of these retirements, just before the candidacy filing deadline, allows GOP leadership to influence the election of their preferred replacements.

The upcoming November elections are prompting speculation about the House’s future, as both Republicans and Democrats face resignations within their ranks. (Trending: First Moon Mission In 50 Years Blasts Off)

Congressmen Larry Bucshon said, “It became clear to me over the Christmas holiday … that the time has come to bring my season in public service to a conclusion.”

Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer and Rep. Doug Lamborn also announced their retirements.

The influence of former President Donald Trump is evident, as House GOP leadership has aligned with his endorsements.
