Two more House Democrats on Tuesday announced they will not be seeking reelection this year.
Rhode Island Congressman James Langevin (D) announced he won’t be running for reelection after 22 years in Congress.
This is the first open seat in Rhode Island since 2010.
“I have not come to this decision lightly, but it is time for me to chart a new course, which will allow me to stay closer to home and spend more time with my family and friends,” Langevin wrote in an op-ed in The Providence Journal. “And while I don’t know what’s next for me just yet, whatever I do will always be in service of Rhode Island.”
