Michigan Democratic Rep. Brenda Lawrence Not Seeking Reelection

Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D, MI-14) announced late Tuesday that she will not run for a 5th term. She is the 25th House Democrat to retire or seek another office this year.

Lawrence represents the Detroit-area 14th district. Numerically, it is being eliminated as the state is losing a district this year. After Lawrence made her decision known, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D, MI-13) announced she would move to run in the new 12th district - where Lawrence might have run - leaving the new 13th district open. In any case, both districts are safely Democratic.
