Democrats are dropping like flies – quitting, retiring, finding different jobs – things are not looking good for the left in 2022.
“Rep. Brenda Lawrence’s retirement makes her the twenty-fifth Democrat to make plans to leave the House after the current term, thus putting more doubt on the House Democrats’ ability to keep the slimming majority after the midterm in less than a year,” according to Breitbart News.
“Lawrence said her decision to retire was ‘personal’ after being in public service for three decades, according to the Detroit News. The 67-year-old was also on the Public Schools Board of Education, Southfield City Council, and was Southfield’s mayor before becoming a member of Congress in 2015,” according to Breitbart News.
“I love the 30-year ride I’ve had — the challenges, the successes, the fighting for democracy. I have so much gratitude for the opportunity I’ve had,” said Lawrence. “But you have to really understand that this life, it’s not forever. And I will find a way to continue to serve, because that’s in my blood.”
“I’m healthy. I’m at the top of my game,” she added. “I have the opportunity to turn the page and to be able to start another chapter in my life of leadership, and I’m looking forward to it.”
‘Democrats hoped to hit the brakes on their retirement crisis, but instead they’ve thrown it into overdrive,” Congressional Leadership Fund Communications Director Calvin Moore said. “Democrats can’t quit Congress fast enough because they know they’re about to get voted out of their Majority.”
Every day a new House Dem sees the writing on the wall and calls it quits. https://t.co/OIwzp9t0zs
