McCarthy Eyes Early Retirement
Kevin McCarthy could join the growing group of lawmakers heading for the exits
According to multiple news reports, former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) may step down and vacate his congressional seat before the end of the year.
McCarthy — who privately told donors he is looking to “get the hell out” — will make a decision before California’s Dec. 8 filing deadline.
Should McCarthy call it quits, he won’t be alone. There are already 30 members of the U.S. House who have decided not to seek re-election next year. If this trend continues, the 2024 election could be one of the biggest retirement years in recent history.
Many of these open-seat districts lean Republican and can be won by true conservatives with the right support. For example, McCarthy’s California district has a +16 Republican Partisan Voting Index (PVI).
The McCarthy news and the recent surge in House retirements point to why conservatives across the nation should work together to support strong candidates in the 2024 elections. Control of the House is on the line, but so is control of the Republican Party inside the House.
