Rhode Island Democrat Won’t Seek Re-Election In Congress

January 19, 2022

One member of New England’s congressional delegation definitely won’t be back next year.

That’s because U.S. Representative Jim Langevin (D-Rhode Island), who has represented the Ocean State’s Second Congressional District since 2001, won’t seek re-election.

“I have not come to this decision lightly, but it is time for me to chart a new course, which will allow me to stay closer to home and spend more time with my family and friends,” Langevin wrote in an opinion piece for The Providence Journal. “And while I don’t know what’s next for me just yet, whatever I do will always be in service of Rhode Island.”

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
