Representative Larry Buschon says he won’t seek reelection


Congressman Larry Buschon R-Ind., who represents Indiana’s 8th congressional district, announced Monday he will not seek re-election following the end of the 2024 session.  

Buschon, whose district includes Posey, Gibson, Vanderburgh and Warrick counties, was first elected to Congress in 2010. He is currently serving his seventh term in the U.S. House of Representatives.  

"Recent disputes in Congress and difficulties advancing policy on behalf of the American people have not soured my faith in our Constitutional Republic form of government… In fact, it has strengthened that faith,” Buchson said in a statement.  

Buschon said that after consideration from his family that he believes his time in politics has finished. Buschon didn’t add any additional details in his statement.  

“Scripture teaches us, ‘For everything there is a season,’ and it became clear to me over the Christmas holiday with much discernment and prayer that the time has come to bring my season in public service to a conclusion,” he said.  

Buschon is a senior member on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and joins 11 other members of Congress announcing their retirement from the House after 2024.
