WASHINGTON, DC – Two Democrats, both who first joined Congress in the 1990’s, are set to retire at the midterm elections, Politico reported.
Neither Pennsylvania Representative Mike Doyle nor North Carolina Representative David Price will seek reelection in the 2022 election, ending their almost two decades of service.
Doyle was first elected in 1994. He’s now 68 years old and was a close ally of Nancy Pelosi. Price was first elected in 1996 and is now 81 years old. He was a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
This comes a week after Kentucky Democrat Representative John Yarmuth announced he would also not be seeking reelection next year. He was a member of the House Budget Committee, having been with Congress since 2007. Yarmuth was the only Democrat in Kentucky’s congressional delegation and was instrumental in Joe Biden’s three trillion budget bill.
“It’s been an incredible journey since my first campaign in 2006 until now,” Yarmuth said. “I will continue to fight for Louisville in Washington for another 15 months, and then, I will retire from Congress.”
Yarmuth is 73 years old and said that he never intended to stay in Congress more than 10 years.
Wisconsin Democratic Representative Ron Kind has also announced he will not be running again, nor will Illinois Democratic Representative Cheri Bustos.
