North Carolina Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry said Tuesday that he will not stand for reelection in 2024. Click the tweet below for his full statement.
First elected in 2004, McHenry is in his 10th term, and is currently Chair of the House Financial Services Committee. In October, he served for three weeks as Acting Speaker, when Kevin McCarthy (CA-20) was ousted.
McHenry represents the 10th Congressional District of North Carolina. It is currently the state's most conservative; McHenry won reelection by a 45% margin in 2022.
Due to a recently-completed midcycle redistricting, the boundaries of each district will shift for the 2024 elections. However, district 10 remains safely Republican. Overall, the new map is expected to result in three or four seats flipping to Republicans in 2024.
Overall 32 current members are retiring or seeking another office in 2024. This includes two - one from each party - that will resign over the next few months.
