The stunning news just dropped — a high-ranking politician is retiring. This announcement has rocked the GOP ahead of the 2022 election.
“Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) announced Wednesday he will retire from the U.S. House of Representatives once his current term ends,” reported Breitbart News. He was first elected in 1996.
Luckily for the GOP, however, Brady’s district is considered “deep red.” He won re-election in 2020 with 73-percent of the vote against his far-left Democrat opponent, Elizabeth Hernandez.
Now, Brady has decided that 26 years in Congress will be enough — leaving room for a likely primary for the safe Republican seat. No announcements have been made yet on who might run.
Brady himself has also not indicated what he plans to do once his final term is completed at the end of 2022. At 66-years-old and with a successful career behind him, he may very well retire outright.
While in Congress, Brady was “the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee and a driving force behind the GOP’s tax cuts,” including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act championed by President Donald Trump.
