The Democrats know they are in trouble going into the 2022 midterms so many are fleeing a sinking ship.
ANOTHER House Democrat is retiring from Congress.
Rep. Alan Lowenthal, a Democrat Rep. in Long Beach, California will not seek reelection in 2022.
80-year-old Lowenthal is the fourth California US House Rep. to announce retirement.
Far-left Politico reported:
Rep. Alan Lowenthal will not run for reelection, adding to a generational changing of the guard in California politics.
The Long Beach Democrat said in a statement that he would not seek a sixth term in Congress, choosing instead to “pass the baton” and spend time with family.
The impact: Lowenthal’s current seat is safely Democratic and will likely remain so even under new lines, though the latest iteration from the state’s independent redistricting commission eliminated one Southern California seat to account for slower population growth.
The 80-year-old Lowenthal is the fourth California House incumbent this year to announce he will not be running in 2022. Rep. Jackie Speier is not seeking reelection, Rep. Karen Bass is running for mayor of Los Angeles and Rep. Devin Nunes will resign at the end of this year to run former President Donald Trump’s new media company.
A couple weeks ago Oregon Democrat Rep. Peter DeFazio, the House Transportation Chair, announced he is retiring shortly after New York Rep. said he will be leaving his seat.
New York Rep. Tom Suozzi announced he will be leaving his 3rd District seat to run for governor in 2022.
Even CNN is admitting Pelosi and the Democrats are in trouble in 2022.
Look for Democrats to use the “Midterm Election Variant” to push for a national mail-in vote in November 2022. They can’t win if they can’t cheat.
