House Democrats are running for the exits at lightening speed. In less than one week, 3 senior House Democrats announced their retirements. And as the DCCC frequently reminds everyone: that doesn’t happen unless they’re expecting to get *crushed* in the midterms.
- First, E+C Subcommittee Chair Mike Doyle announced his retirement
- Then, Approps stalwart David Price followed suit seconds later.
- All after House Budget Chair Yarmuth announced his retirement just last Tuesday.
“Democrats are darting for the exits because they know their days in the Majority are quickly coming to an end,” said CLF Communications Director Calvin Moore. “Why defend middle class tax increases, handouts to Pelosi and the skyrocketing cost of living when it’s so much easier to sail off into the sunset?”
