Rep. Greg Pence (R-Ind.) the brother of former Vice-President Mike Pence announced Tuesday that he is retiring from Congress.
“In 2017, I ran for Congress because I was Ready to Serve Again. As a former Marine Officer, I approached the job with purpose,” Pence wrote in a statement on X/Twitter. “After three terms, I’ve made the decision to note file for reelection.”
Pence said he will spend the remainder of his term focusing on “delivering outstanding constituent services.”
Pence voted to object to the slate of electors from the swing state of Pennsylvania in Congress on Jan. 6, 2021.
He is the latest in a wave of retirements to hit the 118th Congress. According to Ballotpedia, 45 members of Congress have announced they will not be seeking re-election in 2024 including seven senators and 38 House lawmakers.
