Three House Dems announce retirement in 24 hours, leaving Pelosi’s leadership in peril

Three House Democrats announced their retirement from Congress after the current term within a 24-hour period, leaving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at risk of losing her role as speaker and her party in danger of losing power in the 2022 midterms.

The House members included New Jersey’s Albio Sires, Florida’s Stephanie Murphy and California’s Lucille Roybal-Allard.

Murphy is a member of the Jan. 6 House select committee. Despite her claim that she is not leaving due to fear of loss after her district’s redistricting, she faced a strong chance of losing in 2022 as Florida’s conservative voters increase.

Roybal-Allard announced her coming retirement on Twitter. Her district is the most likely to remain blue in the heavily Democrat district.

The three departures raise more concerns than answers as 2022 continues to shape up as a conservative comeback in the House.
