Rep. Greg Pence, R-Ind., brother of former Vice President Mike Pence, announced he is not running for re-election to the House of Representatives this year.

‘In 2017, I ran for Congress because I was Ready to Serve Again. As a former Marine Officer, I approached the job with purpose. After three terms, I’ve made the decision to not file for re-election,’ Greg Pence said on Tuesday morning.

‘For the remainder of my term this year, our team will continue to focus on delivering outstanding constituent services. To the voters in Indiana’s 6th District – it is a privilege and honor to represent you in our Nation’s capital.’

Greg Pence is the latest lawmaker to announce he is leaving Congress, joining more than a dozen House Republicans who have said they are not seeking another term at the end of 2024. 

It comes against the backdrop of a tumultuous 118th Congress, which saw several historic firsts, including the House toppling its own speaker for the first time. With just a razor-thin majority, the House GOP Conference has been fraught with division over both social and fiscal issues.

The 2024 election cycle is expected to see many of those same tensions flare up, particularly with former President Trump expected to win the GOP presidential nomination.

Greg Pence represents Indiana’s 6th Congressional District, which was held by his brother, the former vice president, for roughly a decade until 2013.

The former vice president’s relationship with Trump ruptured in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump criticized Mike Pence for not rejecting the 2020 electoral college results, prompting the former president’s supporters to turn on him. Rioters who broke into the Capitol on Jan. 6 were heard calling for Mike Pence to be hanged. 

Mike Pence, who challenged Trump for the 2024 nomination but dropped out in late October, has maintained that he did the right thing in certifying the election results and accused the former president of endangering his family.
