Florida Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch Won't Seek Reelection; Will Resign this Fall

Rep. Ted Deutch (FL-22) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in November. Deutch is expected to leave Congress in the fall as he takes on a new role as CEO of the American Jewish Committee. He is the 31st Democrat to retire or run for other office this year.

Deutch is in his 7th term and currently represents the 22nd district. In its current form, this coastal district runs from north of Boca Raton to south of Fort Lauderdale. Deutch was reelected by a 17% margin in 2020. 

With 28 congressional districts for the next decade, Florida is the largest of six states that has not yet completed redistricting. While Republicans control the entire process, there has been considerable disagreement both in the Legislature and between the Legislature and Gov. Ron DeSantis about how aggressively the party should push its advantage.
