Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) will reportedly not seek reelection next year, becoming the latest congressional Democratic lawmaker to announce retirement ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
Spectrum 1 News reported on Wednesday that Butterfield, who was first elected to Congress in 2004 to serve in North Carolina’s 1st congressional district, will not run for a 10th term next year.
The article goes on to state the following:
Butterfield’s office would not confirm or deny the reports of the congressman’s retirement, but told Spectrum 1 News that “the official announcement will be made later today or tomorrow.”
The expected announcement will serve as another blow after nine House Democrats have announced they will not see reelection in 2022, decreasing the likelihood of maintaining the majority in the House following the midterms.
Republicans only need to pick up five seats to gain control of the House next year.
