WALKAWAY: Another Republican congressman has announced his retirement and will not run in 2020
Rep. Tom Graves announced Thursday he will not seek reelection in 2020, joining the growing ranks of House Republicans heading for the exits in the current election cycle.

Citing “a new season in life,” Graves said he will join his family members “in their new and unique journeys” as his wife nears retirement and his three children enter adulthood.

The 49-year-old Georgian will have served in Congress for more than a decade once he finishes his current term and becomes the 21st House Republican so far to announce intentions to depart this Congress, in contrast to nine House Democrats.

In the House, Graves has established himself as a fiscal hawk in favor of cost-cutting measures aimed at driving down the debt and deficit.

“I have trouble seeing how he lines up with the great tradition of Lincoln and Reagan, and I'm concerned that many of his statements run afoul of the Constitution, my values and my beliefs,” Graves said in a letter to his supporters.

“Then there's a simpler test: would I be comfortable if my three children acted like Trump? Certainly not.”

> 10% of House Republicans have announced they will not be running again in 2020.

Perfectly normal.

In all, 19 GOP House members and four senators are forgoing reelection next year without declaring their candidacy for another office, while just seven Democrats in the House and one in the Senate are retiring outright. The trend mirrors 2018, when more than two dozen Republicans retired ahead of the midterms, foreshadowing the blue wave that swept in a Democratic majority.
