WALKAWAY: More Republicans than Democrats leaving Congress before 2020 election
More Republicans than Democrats are exiting Congress in the lead up to the 2020 elections. 13 GOP representatives and 4 senators are retiring without bids for higher office, compared to 1 Senate and 3 House Democrats.

Why it matters: Congressional retirements can describe the political landscape before an election and may signal that some GOP candidates lack confidence that their party can retake control of the House, per The Atlantic.

Retiring House Republicans:

Will Hurd, Texas-23 (Partisan Voter Index, via Cook Political Report: R+15)
James Sensenbrenner, Wisc.-5 (R+13)
Susan Brooks, Ind.-5 (R+9)
Martha Roby, Ala.-2 (R+16)
Sean Duffy, Wis.-7 (R+8)
John Shimkus, Ill.-15 (R+21)
Bill Flores, Texas-17 (R+12)
Rob Woodall, Ga.-7 (R+9)
Paul Mitchell, Mich.-10 (R+13)
Pete Olson, Texas-22 (R+10)
Kenny Marchant, Texas-24 (R+9)
Mike Conaway, Texas-11 (R+32)
Rob Bishop, Utah-1 (R+26)


Retiring House Democrats:

José Serrano, N.Y.-15 (D+44)
Dave Loebsack, Iowa-2 (D+1)
Susan Davis, Calif.-53 (D+14)

It's not wishful thinking. Everyone in that list has publicly announced their retirement from Congress and they will not be running again.

Wave of GOP retirements threatens 2020 comeback


A wave of House GOP retirements that accelerated during the August recess is creating fresh headaches for party leaders and suggesting Republicans see little chance of winning back the chamber in 2020.

So far, 15 Republicans have announced this cycle that they are retiring, resigning or running for other offices, including eight since the summer recess began in late July.

A handful of those departing, such as Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), would have faced tough reelections in competitive districts.

But the vast majority occupy safe, conservative seats — a sign that these lawmakers may be fatigued from the chaotic Trump era and have no desire to wander in the political wilderness for another two years or longer after losing the House in 2018.

Whatever the cause, retirements are piling up quickly.

This week, GOP Reps. Bill Flores (Texas) and Jim Sensenbrenner (Wis.) said they won’t seek another term in 2020.

They joined six other Republicans to announce over the summer recess that they’re either retiring or resigning: Reps. Hurd, Kenny Marchant (Texas), Sean Duffy (Wis.) and John Shimkus (Ill.) as well as former Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (Utah) and former Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (Texas).

Democrats have mocked the five GOP retirements from the Lone Star state as the “Texodus.”

All told, 15 Republicans have already announced plans to give up their seats, compared to four Democrats. And as the retirement list has grown this summer, GOP lawmakers and aides are anxiously asking one another who might be next to go.

I'm forecasting 2/3rds in each chamber.
Evicting the new President.
Just enough to put the vice in the seat for the second round.

The next House speaker will be our President by 2022.

Love it when the trash takes itself out!

imho, Republicans don't have a hard time returning to the private sector, they have marketable skills and some have business experience, whereas most Democrats can never find as cushy a job as they have in CONgress, what "skills" do most of them have that would translate to private sector success???
