House Budget Committee chairman John Yarmuth (D-Louisville) yesterday announced that he will not seek re-election to a 9th term in the House next year. Though redistricting is not yet complete in Kentucky, it is likely Mr. Yarmuth’s retirement will not change the configuration of the next congressional map and the Louisville anchored 3rd District will remain as a the state’s one solid Democratic seat.
Rep. Yarmuth’s retirement means there will be 23 open seats in the 2022 election cycle, adding the seven new reapportionment seats and not counting the three that are currently in special elections. Of the 16 opens involving current members, both parties risk eight seats.
