Rep. Victoria Spartz, Republican of Indiana, has announced she will not seek re-election in 2024.
This is a big disappointment because Spartz is one of the true conservatives serving in Congress. She claims she needs more time to raise her children, which is understandable, but it’s still sad knowing she’s leaving the house.
Hopefully, he will continue to be a voice for rights.

GOP Rep. Victoria Spartz was the first to announce her departure, 3 months after re-election
From Washington, D.C., to Fort Wayne, Indiana, Republicans and several Democrats and independents were stunned Friday by the news that two-term Rep. Victoria Spartz, R-Ind., will not seek re-election in 2024.
The only Ukrainian-born member of Congress told reporters that, at age 44, “being a working mom is tough, and I have to spend more time back home with my two high school daughters, so I won’t be running for office in 2024.”
Spartz previously indicated he might consider a run for the Hoosier state’s U.S. Senate seat next year.
Just three months after becoming the first U.S. representative to announce retirement and win her second term — Spartz continues a growing trend of lawmakers leaving after a short term rather than accumulating seniority, a model for generations of previous House members.
“He probably found that Congress wasn’t who he signed up for,” one retired House staffer told NewsMax, adding to the long hours and weekly commutes for modern House members.

As a legal immigrant to America, Spartz understands freedom better than many members of the House who were born here.
Will be sad to see him go.
