New York Representative John Katko has announced he will not run for another term in Congress. Katko was one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

The Hill reports:

“After 32 years of public service, I have decided not to seek re-election to Congress, so that I can enjoy my family and life in a fuller and more present way,” Katko said in a statement.

“My conscience, principles, and commitment to do what’s right have guided every decision I’ve made as a member of Congress, and they guide my decision today,” he continued. “It is how I’ve been able to unite people to solve problems, and how I was rewarded with resounding victories in every single campaign for Congress.”

Katko has represented New York’s 24th congressional district in the Syracuse area since 2015. He currently serves as the ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee.

Three Republicans are running in the district’s Republican primary, including software engineer John Murtari, neurosurgery physician’s assistant Tim Ko, and Navy veteran Francis Conole.

Biden slips and tells all how he won the election, it’s who gets to count the votes that counts. Disagree with that, he seems and acts that he is the president of the blue states and illegals only, failed adjenda is the hallmark of ells all how he wao the electiohis radical administration, this is what happens when they choose “who gets to count the vote”. Stage rooms, hidden from reporters, giant wall teleprompter, concealed ear voice relays, fart proof sound disapaters, and he still fxxxs everything up, this is the United Staes of America, not the biden wantaby dicatatorship, joe biden man without a country, his America last policy is blowing up in his face this is what happens when the father and son team travel the world at the tax payors expense with their hands out, looking for monetary gain, at the cost of loyalty to America. Now that more and more has become public information joe biden is attempting to change and alter our constitution to hide behind smoke screens to ease their personal gain against the rules and laws. Return their pot of gold received from China and Russia taken form them for promises to do what? Recent court ruling shows a check on bidens power grabs, his total avoidance of any due process, for his implementation of executive directives without any regard for the legislative branch or any State considerations, let alone the American public at large. This trend will continue until his lust for political power and the return of American values without the dictatorship he is trying to put into effect.

Trans: I see I’m about to have my ass handed to me by the voters, because I’m a RINO. I’m quitting.

I’m beginning to think term limits do have their place. He probably got rich those 32 yrs. while in Congress; it seems to be the reason they run!

John did represent his voters initially but obviously lost touch of them . I think he is a very intelligent person, too smart to really think Biden actually had 80 million people vote for him. John turned his back on us, we were about to do the same to him.

32 years is too long to serve as just a politician. Another forever politician who no doubt has left congress far richer than he came in. And that is the point. As a rino he is just like Old Nanc. Good riddance! And a great argument for TERM LIMITS!
