Maryland Democratic Rep. John Sarbanes will not run for reelection in 2024

Democratic Rep. John Sarbanes of Maryland announced Thursday that he will not seek reelection next year. In his statement, Sarbanes said he will complete the current term - his 9th - with an eye toward other forms of public service once he leaves Congress.

Sarbanes represents Maryland's 3rd congressional district. It includes much of the southern and western suburbs of Baltimore and extends to Annapolis. The district is safely Democratic; Sarbanes won his final term in 2022 by a 60% to 40% margin.

18 current House members have announced they are retiring or seeking another office in 2024. Sarbanes is the second from Maryland; Democrat David Trone (MD-06) is running for U.S. Senate.
