WI: Gallagher won’t seek reelection to US House

Source: United Press International

“Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wisc.) said Saturday he will not seek reelection in November, making him the fourth Republican to leave the House GOP’s shrinking majority. Gallagher’s announcement to leave came days after his controversial vote not to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Some pro-Trump Republican colleagues threatened to primary him over the decision. ‘The Framers intended citizens to serve in Congress for a season and then return to their private lives,’ Gallagher said. ‘Electoral politics was never supposed to be a career and, trust me, Congress is no place to grow old.'” (02/10/24)
