Mary­land Demo­c­rat John Sar­banes to for­go reelec­tion

Rep. John Sar­banes (D‑MD) announced Thurs­day that he is not seek­ing reelec­tion for what would have been his 10th term.
Sar­banes will fin­ish his term in 2024 after 18 years in the House. His late father, Paul, at one point held the record for the longest-serv­ing sen­a­tor for Mary­land. Sen. Ben Cardin (D‑MD), who replaced him in 2006, is also not seek­ing reelec­tion in 2024, which left many to spec­u­late that the junior Sar­banes would take his place.
