JUST IN: A top GOP Senator announces he WILL NOT run for reelection in 2022

Sen. Roy Blunt (Mo.), a member of GOP leadership, announced on Monday that he won’t run for reelection in 2022 — marking the latest high-profile retirement for Senate Republicans.

“After 14 general election victories — three to county office, seven to the United States House of Representatives, and four statewide elections — I won’t be a candidate for reelection to the United States Senate next year,” Blunt said in a video.

Blunt, 71, said that he will finish out his current term, which runs through 2022. He’s the fifth Senate Republican expected to not seek reelection.

Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) have all announced that they will retire at the end of their current term. Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) has also previously indicated he won’t run for reelection.

  2. There are 4 more listed under the Comments. Republicans dropping like Flies,, for 2022 elections. Great News it was Never intended to be a Career 😜🙂🙂

  3. damn trump, all the GOP senators retiring there's going to be 1 party that's Democrats, you have ran all the Republicans off ,they are all scared of having to deal with your crap.

  4. Of course he's not, he's been told either he steps down and walks away and they will let him keep his dignity, which he does not deserve! All these criminals who worked to sell the people of this country out, stolen votes think they can get away with this. NOT!! justice is coming for each and every one of them, and it's not the courts, or DOJ, military is going to be making sure that the people are protected and they follow the rule of the constitution!!

  5. Obtaining a seat in the US Government is without question better than hitting a huge lottery; our “ Representatives “ will do anything and everything to keep their Jobs – whether the Senate or Congress: many retire millionaires whether from insider trading or selling their “vote” to the highest bidder. They have awarded themselves platinum pensions and platinum healthcare – given to them whether the finish their term or not. If a Representative is caught taking bribes and are thrown out of office – they keep their pension and healthcare.
    We must have term limits and put an end to the “Political Class” they have created for themselves.

  6. Finally… these old politicians got the message that they are no longer relevant of important.
    The smart people leave the party early before they are thrown out!👍
