U.S. Rep. Greg Pence, R-Ind. District 6, announced Tuesday that he will not seek reelection in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In the statement posted on X, Pence said, “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 reelection.”
According to Pence’s website, the Congressman was elected into the U.S. House of Representatives on January 3, 2019, where he served three terms for Indiana’s 6th District. Pence, a former Marine and businessman, currently serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, including the Subcommittee on Energy and Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce. In addition to Pence’s committee appointments, Pence’s website states the Congressman serves as a part of the GOP leadership’s “WHIP Team,” which seeks to align political party members around a shared agenda and voting method.
The 67-year-old Congressman, who is the older brother of former Vice President Mike Pence, first ran in 2017 for the eastern Indiana congressional seat.
Pence’s announcement that he won’t seek a fourth term comes after U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Ind. District 8 announced Monday that he would be retiring following the 2024 session.
In his statement, Pence said he and his team will “continue to focus on delivering outstanding constituent services” for the rest of his term.
“To the voters in Indiana’s 6th District – it is a privilege and honor to represent you in our Nation’s capital,” Pence said in the statement.
