JUST IN: Yet ANOTHER GOP Lawmaker Announces Retirement, Majority In CRITICAL Condition

Yet another Republican lawmaker has announced that he will be retiring from politics after this year and not seeking reelection.

Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) has announced that 2024 will be his last year as a lawmaker and has endorsed his understudy Mike Haridopolos as his replacement.

Posey’s unexpected retirement from Congress has raised even more concerns regarding the ever-shrinking GOP majority in the House of Representatives.

Even if President Trump wins in November, which is looking increasingly likely, he will likely inherit a Democrat-controlled legislature.

On Friday, Posey announced his retirement via this press release:

According to Just The News:

Posey, who has served in the House since 2008, made the announcement after the filing deadline for the race closed.

The Floridian is now one of nearly two dozen incumbents that have opted out of running for reelection.

Emerald Robinson pointed out: “What are the odds that the GOP’s slim House majority holds until November? The odds are not good. They don’t want to protect Trump. They don’t want Trump to be re-elected. It’s all just failure theater. The GOP’s entire facade might come crashing down.”

The Hill added:

While Posey didn’t mention what it was like within the House in his announcement, many of the Republicans leaving office voiced a common theme for their departure: the toxicity of Capitol Hill.
