Republican Representative Mike Gallagher, who represents the 8th Congressional district of Wisconsin, announced earlier this year that he would be retiring from the House of Representatives after serving his current term in Office. 

On February 10th, 2024, Gallagher made the public announcement that he would not seek re-election to his position in 2024, further diminishing the slim majority Republicans currently hold in the House of Representatives.

Gallagher joins the ranks of 14 other House Republicans who have also announced that they will not seek re-election heading into 2024. That list includes,

  • Debbie Lesko (AZ-8)
    Kay Granger (TX-12)
  • Brad Wenstrup (OH-2)
  • Michael Burgess (TX-26)
    Patrick McHenry (NC-10)
  • Drew Ferguson (GA-3)
  • Doug Lamborn (CO-5)
  • Larry Bucshon (IN-8)
  • Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-3)
  • Greg Pence (IN-6)
  • Jeff Duncan (SC-3)
  • Matt Rosendale (MT-2)
  • Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-5)

Yesterday Rep. Gallagher announced that he will be retiring from his position in the House earlier than expected, stating that he would officially resign his seat on April 19th, 2024. This places Gallagher on a list of several other Republican officials who have resigned from their positions in the House since the Republican takeover of the chamber in 2022.

That list of members includes,

  • Ken Buck (CO-4)
  • Bill Johnson (OH-6)
  • Kevin McCarthy (CA-20)

In addition to these members, George Santos, who represented New York’s 3rd Congressional district was expelled from Congress on December 1st, 2023. In total, the Republican Party has lost four members to retirement already.

The Republican Party currently holds just 218 seats in the House, while the Democrats currently hold 213. Colorado Representative Ken Buck officially vacated his seat on Friday, March 22nd, pulling the Republican majority down an additional seat.

Once Mike Gallagher departs on April 19th, the House Republican majority will have shrunk to just 217, the bare minimum needed to advance legislation in the body. As it stands, the Republican Party is just one retirement away from losing their majority in the House, and once again handing unilateral control of Washington D.C. to the Democratic Party and Joe Biden.

Revealing an apparent sinister nature to Gallagher’s retirement, and the timing of the decision, Wisconsin law would afford a special election for Republicans to elect his replacement if Gallagher had just retired days earlier. If Gallagher had chosen to leave office anytime before the second Tuesday in April, a special election to choose his replacement would have occurred.

Since Gallagher has decided to retire on the 19th, the second Friday of April, his seat will remain vacated until it is eventually filled by the winner of the 8th district of Wisconsin in the 2024 Election.

Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has called out Gallagher for his decision to leave office after the deadline for a special election and has even called for Gallagher to be expelled from Congress before the looming deadline.

To understand the impact that Republicans losing their majority in the House of Representatives would have on the 2024 Election, we mustn’t look further than the recent Supreme Court decision regarding former President Donald Trump’s ballot access in the upcoming election.

The Supreme Court definitively stated in that ruling that Congress, not the individual States, had the right to bar an individual from access to the Presidential ballot. If Republicans can maintain their majority in the House, the prospect of Trump being removed from the Presidential ballot is practically impossible.

Should the Democrats regain control of the House before the 2024 Election, the prospect of President Trump being removed from the Presidential ballot becomes an almost certain possibility.

The Democrats already maintain a slight majority in the Senate, enough to pass whatever they like should Hakeem Jeffries and the Democrats regain control of the House.

Once again, it appears that the largest threat facing former President Donald Trump is not from the Democratic Party, but from those within his own Party. When examining those who have decided to retire from Congress, and not seek re-election in 2024, we find many commonalities.
