Eleventh Republican Congressman Announces He Won't Run For Reelection


Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX) has become the eleventh GOP Congressman, the fourth from Texas, to officially announce that he won’t be running for reelection.

Marchant, an eight-term veteran in the House, had won by large margins in seemingly all but his reelection last year. According to the newstimes:

Marchant, 68, was reelected by a 3 percentage point margin last year from his suburban district between Dallas and Fort Worth. He'd won by 17 percentage points in 2016 and by 33 percentage points in 2014.

As the GOP struggles for Congressional dominance, one must wonder if the rapid turnover in Congress will not only be a thorn in the party’s side, but will stop any sort of Republican-dominated House prospects altogether.
