Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (IN-09) said Tuesday that he won't seek reelection this year. He is the 12th Republican to retire or seek another office. 26 Democrats have also made that decision.
As I contemplate how I can work for you in new and better ways in the future, I won’t run for reelection this year….now I will fight for you and us in different ways.https://t.co/mwElf3bZf9— Trey Hollingsworth (@RepTrey) January 12, 2022
Hollingsworth is in his third term representing Indiana's 9th district which is located in the southcentral part of the state, from south of Indianapolis to the Kentucky border. It has been a safely Republican district. In 2020, Hollingsworth won by a 27% margin, while Donald Trump bested Joe Biden by 24%.
Redistricting in Indiana has made the 9th district slightly redder, as it removes areas of suburban Indianapolis and expands to cover the entire southeastern part of the state. Using the reformulated district, Trump's margin of victory would be 28%.
