Representative G.K. Butterfield is today set to become the latest Democrat to quit the House two weeks after a new congressional map was carved up in a boost to the .

He becomes the seventh House Democrat from a battleground district to announce he won’t be running for re-election next year, along with nine other Democrats in safer seats.

Jackie Speier, who represents a blue stronghold in , announced on Tuesday that she won’t be running again, saying it’s ‘time for me to be more than a weekend wife.’

Republicans are smelling blood over the early string of exits – often the sign of a gathering political storm – as they hope to wipe out the Democrats’ narrow six-seat majority. 

It ratchets up the pressure on the Biden administration after a general election that saw the Democrats barely managing to oust Donald Trump while suffering a bruising number of losses in districts they expected to clinch. 

Representative G. K. Butterfield is today expected to announce his resignation. Butterfield, 74, a longtime leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, was first elected to an Eastern North Carolina congressional seat in 2004. Biden won by around 9 points there last year, with Butterfield re-elected by a similar margin. But under new battle lines drawn up by the Republicans, Biden would have won by just 3 points and Butterfield's seat has been marked up as a top target for the GOP.

In Florida, Rep. Charlie Crist announced a run for Governor in October, opening up an incredibly vulnerable seat to the Republicans.

In Arizona's 2nd congressional district, Ann Kirkpatrick has announced she won't run again after entering alcohol rehab last year following a fall on the Washington Metro. She won 55 percent of the vote share in 2020, but the GOP will believe they can flip the seat.

Other pickup opportunities include in western Pennsylvania, where Rep. Conor Lamb, a former Marine, is now gunning for the Senate. He won his seat by a slender two points over Republican Sean Parnell.

Veteran Rep. Ron Kind, of Wisconsin, announced he was stepping down in August in another big blow to the Democrats. His seat was a top target for the GOP in 2022 and will be even tougher to hang onto now after Kind admitted he had 'run out of gas.'
