Three down — Seven to go.
RINO Rep. John Katko (R-NY) announced on Friday he will not seek reelection.
Katko was one of ten Republicans to vote to impeach President Trump over ginned up charges related to the January 6 protests.
Katko follows Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Anthony Gonzalez from Ohio to call it quits after their impeachment vote in 2021.
Rep. John Katko of New York, one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, announced Friday he will not seek reelection.
In his announcement, Katko cited wanting to be more present with his family as part of the reason for his decision.
“That’s why, after 32 years of public service, I have decided not to seek re-election to Congress, so that I can enjoy my family and life in a fuller and more present way,” Katko said.
Katko is the third GOP impeachment backer to call it quits, following in the footsteps of Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio. Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan has yet to make an official announcement about his reelection plans.
UPDATE: President Trump celebrates.
