Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger, chair of the House Appropriations Committee, has announced that she will NOT be seeking reelection in 2024.
Granger has served in Congress for over two decades.
Kay has represented Texas' 12th District since 1997.
"Serving my community has been the greatest honor, and I have always fought to improve the lives of my constituents," she said, adding:
As the first female Mayor of Fort Worth, first Republican United States Congresswoman from Texas, and the first female Republican Appropriations Chair, I have been able to accomplish more in this life than I could have imagined, and I owe it all to my incredible family, staff, friends, and supporters.
Granger is extremely popular, having won against the Democratic challenger in 2022 by almost a 2-1 margin.
Despite that, Granger is 80, and the years are catching up and she's slowing down.
"It’s time for the next generation to step up and take the mantle and be a strong and fierce representative for the people," Granger said in her retirement announcement.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
