Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher to leave Congress
Rep. Mike Gallagher (WI), one of the only three Republicans who voted against impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, will not seek reelection.
Gallagher took to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to break the news to his followers.
“Electoral politics was never supposed to be a career and, trust me, Congress is no place to grow old. And so, with a heavy heart, I have decided not to run for reelection,” Gallagher wrote in his recent post.
Gallagher also gave a statement to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The congressman said he plans to spend more time with his family and that “even though my title may change, my job may change, my mission is always going to remain the same.”
“My mission is to prevent World War III,” Gallagher said.
He wants to prevent World War III?
If Gallagher was truly concerned about World War III, he would have voted to impeach the man who advocated for one of the most outrageous and dangerous border bills we have ever seen in the history of America.
Gallagher did not stop there.
“I’ve dedicated myself to restoring conventional deterrence in order to prevent a war with China, and so whatever I do next will be an extension of that mission,” Gallagher concluded.
We are glad to see him go.
We need someone in Gallagher’s place who understands that accountability MATTERS.
We need people in office who are going to make sure that safety of the citizens of this country is a top priority.
The crisis at the border is more serious than ever before and needs action.
Anyone who is not on the same page about that should not seek re-election.
We hope that Gallagher is able to enjoy time with his family, and we hope his replacement does a better job.
