GOP Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer Won't Seek Reelection This Year

Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer said Thursday that he will retire at the end of this term. 

Luetkemeyer represents the oddly-shaped, safely Republican 3rd congressional district. He was reelected to his eighth term in 2022 by a 30% margin. 

This brings to 37 the number of current House members not seeking reelection this November. This includes two members who have announced they will be leaving before the end of the term.  

One of those, Bill Johnson (R, OH-06) will be departing January 21. On Thursday, Gov. Mike DeWine (R) scheduled a special primary election on March 19, followed by the special election on June 11. March 19 is the same date as the regular statewide primary for 2024.
