GOP Rep Reverses Decision To Retire From Congress, Will Seek Another Term

Republican Rep. Victoria Spartz of Indiana announced she will seek reelection in 2024 on Monday after previously deciding to retire.

Spartz announced just months after being reelected that she would not run for a third term in the lower chamber to spend more time at home with her family. Following a wave of GOP retirements in late 2023 and early 2024, Spartz reversed her decision and intends on filing for reelection, according to a statement from the congresswoman.

“Deciding where your duty lies – family, work, or country, is never an easy task. Earlier last year, I decided to take some time off from running for public office to recharge and spend more time in Indiana with my family,” Spartz said in a statement. “However, looking where we are today, and urged by many of my constituents, I do not believe I would be able to deliver this Congress, with the current failed leadership in Washington, D.C., on the important issues for our nation that I have worked very hard on.”

“As someone who grew up under tyranny, I understand the significance of these challenging times for our Republic, and if my fellow Hoosiers and God decide, I will be honored to continue fighting for them. We must carry on the sacrifice of countless Americans for our liberties and keep the American dream alive for our children,” Spartz added.

The Cook Political Report characterizes Spartz’s seat in the “Solid Republican” category for 2024. The congresswoman secured her most recent term in 2022 by over 20 points.

There are currently 17 other House Republicans not seeking another term, including several who are seeking statewide positions or Senate seats, according to the Press Gallery.

There are two upcoming special elections to fill vacancies left by expelled GOP Rep. George Santos of New York and former Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California on Feb. 13 and March 19, respectively.

Spartz did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
