Democrats seem to be in trouble.
They’re hemorrhaging party members, and I feel as if this could signal a red wave in 2022, as Democrats lose their majority in both chambers of Congress.
Each one cites different reasons for leaving, ranging from the personal, to renewing their focus and future projects to state and local issues.
Could the timing be a coincidence though?
It’s no secret that the Biden administration is failing, and perhaps these Democrats are jumping ship before they’re stuck on a sinking vessel unable to escape…..
Anthony Brown recently announced that he will not be running for re-election, and will instead run as Maryland’s Attorney General.
Here’s Anthony Brown’s campaign video for his upcoming AG campaign:
Other notable Democrats are retiring as well.
The list includes, but isn’t limited to Rep. John Yarmuth, and Mike Doyle:
It's been an incredible journey since my first campaign in 2006 until now. I will continue to fight for Louisville in Washington for another 15 months, and then, I will retire from Congress.
I will have plenty more to say in the months ahead but this is what I want you to know: pic.twitter.com/MXFmWrSTYv

The Epoch Times states:
Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) is the 14th Democrat in the House of Representatives who won’t be running for re-election after announcing on Monday a bid to succeed Maryland’s attorney general.
“We’ve made progress over the years, but too many barriers exist for too many Marylanders, from health care and housing to the environment and education, to workplaces, policing and the criminal justice system,” Brown, 59, said in his campaign announcement video. “I’m running for attorney general to dismantle those barriers.”
Longtime Pittsburgh Democrat Mike Doyle is retiring from Congress after more than 25 years in office.
“I believe the time had come to pass the torch to the next generation…this was not an easy decision and I spent the most of this year going back and forth.” pic.twitter.com/9B1dU3Qca1
