Does the 23rd GOP Retirement Spell Doom for Retaking the House?
Representative Ted Yoho of Florida's 3rd District said yesterday he won't seek reelection next year, becoming the 23rd GOP congresscritter to make such an announcement.
If you're starting to get spooked, it might be because in 2018 -- before the Democrats took back the House as was widely predicted -- 26 Republicans declined to stand for reelection. Typically, widespread retirements are a sign that the other party is about to win bigly. Does that mean the House GOP is just 11 months away from becoming an even smaller minority?
I don't think so.
