Sen. Orrin Hatch, the longest-serving Senate Republican, announced on Jan. 2 that he would not seek re-election ending weeks of speculation to the contrary.
Hatch, an 83-year-old from Utah, said he would retire at the end of his term.
Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., also announced the same day that he would not seek re-election. Shuster, 56, told the Washington Examiner that he hopes to work with President Trump on an infrastructure bill before he retires.
Multiple Republican lawmakers have already announced that they would not return to Washington after 2018. In general, fall retirement announcements are nothing new. On average, 22 House members retire each cycle, Roll Call reported.
Heres the list of Republicans, in the House and Senate, who have announced they will not seek re-election:

ugh...my list turned into mush! Sorry about the formatting.
The OP provides a brief write up for each of the 27 Republicans leaving congress.
Most of them are Bush League Republicans working for the Cheap Labor Express.
This is a plus for US.
Chaffetz & Strange already replaced.
Franks , Murphy Tiberi will be soon.
Some of these Republicans will not return to the House either as they run for other offices. For Governor or Senator
Sam Johnson is retiring. His wife died recently and he is 86 and a Korean war and Vietnam vet and former prisoner of war. He served our country and his constituents with distinction.
+1. Was thinking the same thing when I saw how many Texas congresscritters were leaving.
Where is the list of the elected Dimocrat criminals with more than 4 terms in Congress who will not return after the 2018 midterm elections?
They forgot John McCain. I doubt he’ll live to see the midterm election.
Is Juan back in DC now?
Some of the retirees are in safe R districts. I doubt the Dems won’t retake the house.
Is there a list of democrats retiring?
It would have made the news, if he'd returned to the Senate. My guess is, he's down for the count, and won't ever return to Washington.
