Rep. G. K. Butterfield announced Thursday he will retire at the end of his term, delivering a blow to Democrats’ efforts to maintain control of the House after next year’s midterm elections.

In a video announcement, Butterfield, who has represented his North Carolina district since 2004, said the changes from the state’s redistricting process left him “terribly disappointed.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The new North Carolina map made Butterfield’s previously safe district much more friendly to Republicans. Butterfield carried his previous district by 9 points last year, but his new district would have reelected him by just 1.


In his announcement, Butterfield, 74, called his decision “difficult” but said it was time for him to retire.

A total of 13 incumbent Democrats have now announced they will be retiring at the end of their term.

  1. It’s time North Carolina got back to being a state with values Ever since they kept electing democrats
    Satans agenda changed the state
    No female bathrooms and naked people in public Dancing In the streets of Asheville NC and allowing illegals to rape children and get by with it etc.

  2. There’s more to this, than is being said. Too many Democratic Politicians dropping out, and using ” Generic ” excuses for their departure. I believe these Dems might see the ” writing on the wall ” as to the direction, their party is heading towards. But they will NOT go against their Party, and be honest with their constituents about the REAL reason for their departure.

  3. All these politicians have made millions off the American people, mainly the Democrats, not sure I’d say they are retiring just because they see the destruction their party is doing. They are set for life on our tax dollars and there is always and agenda that we don’t see coming.
