NRCC Chairman: ‘There Won’t Be A Lot’ More House GOP Retirements


The chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, House Republicans’ campaign arm, said Wednesday there would be more retirement announcements ahead from among his ranks — but fewer than 10.

I am convinced that there won’t be a lot of other retirements coming,” the chairman, Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd. 

“Okay, but you don’t rule out that more may come,” Todd responded. “But you think you will keep it under ten?”

“Oh, I think for sure,” Stivers said. “You know, I thought there would be potentially two more.” 

“I knew about Dennis, he and I had been talking since January,” Stivers said, a reference to Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL), who announced his retirement today, as did House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI ).
