Republican Congressman Who Voted Against Impeaching Mayorkas Announces Retirement

Gallagher’s Announcement Not Linked to Impeachment Vote: The Delicate Balancing Act of the GOP House Majority

On Saturday, Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin announced that he will not seek reelection to his seat, a decision that has come just days after he opposed his party’s call to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Gallagher, a notable figure in the House’s efforts to counter the Chinese government, made the announcement through X.

Despite the growing criticism of the Biden administration for its failure to secure the US-Mexico border, Gallagher’s vote against imposing impeachment on Mayorkas was not linked to his statement. Nevertheless, his vote highlights the delicate position of the GOP’s slim House majority, where a few defections can result in a loss of crucial legislation.

Last June, Gallagher had announced that he would not challenge Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin, which proved to be a significant setback for Republicans in a competitive swing state.
