Rep. Greg Pence of Indiana Adds His Name to Recent GOP House Exodus

Rep. Greg Pence (IN-06) said Tuesday that he will not run for reelection this year. He is the fifth Republican to announce a planned departure from the U.S. House since the beginning of the year. Overall, however, there are still more Democrats leaving than Republicans - the count is now 23-17. This includes two pending resignations, one from each party.

Pence, now completing his third term, is the brother of former vice-president Mike Pence. He becomes the fourth (of seven) GOP members of the Indiana House delegation to announce their retirement, although Rep. Victoria Spartz (IN-05) has been wavering on her decision.

Indiana's 6th congressional district is in the east central part of the state. It includes parts of the Indianapolis area, and extends eastward to the Ohio border. Pence won this safely Republican seat by a 35% margin in 2022.
