So far 17 republicans and 4 democrats leaving office, warning sign.


Quote:
Congressional retirements are an early indicator of the political environment, and for the second consecutive election, more Republicans than Democrats are heading for the exit.


In all so far, 13 GOP House members and four senators are forgoing reelection next year without declaring their candidacy for a higher office, while just three Democrats in the House and one in the Senate are retiring outright. More than two dozen Republicans retired ahead of the 2018 midterms, foreshadowing the blue wave that swept in a Democratic majority.

Typically, right after Labor Day is when many announce they are throwing in the towel.

I can see Republican's leaving the house, but it's more telling when Republican's leave the Senate. Another blue wave in the Senate in 2020?
