This past Thursday, Republican Rep. Dan Bishop (NC-08) announced he was running for North Carolina Attorney General in 2024. He becomes a credible candidate for a position held by Democrats for all but a few months of the past 120 years.1
That brings to 13 the number of current members not seeking reelection to the House next year. All but two are seeking another office, with ten running for U.S. Senate. Bishop is the only announced departure seeking a different office. Not included in the 13 is Utah District 2 Rep. Chris Stewart (R), who is resigning effective September 15.
Six Democratic and four Republican-held seats are considered 'safe' for the incumbent party in 2024. The other three seats, held by Democrats, have varying levels of competitiveness.
