Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC) Will Not Seek Re-election

Rep. G.K. Butterfield, D-N.C., said yesterday he will not seek re-election in 2022. That makes him the third Democratic member of Congress this week to announce retirement plans. Butterfield, a prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus and former CBC chair, was first elected to the House in 2004. Recent redistricting in North Carolina means he would have faced a tougher road to re-election.
