House Republicans, Dropping Like Flies

The latest is Dave Weldon from Florida's Space Coast. He's the 25th Republican to announce he won't seek reelection in November. That's over 12% of their caucus, and there is every reason to think more retirement announcements are on the way. It's not surprising given that they doubtless don't like serving in the minority in the House, and all signs point to at least 3 more years of Democratic rule at the very least. But this level of retirements is going to make it notably harder for the Republicans to eventually return to power.
