“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 op-ed in 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.”

Langevin, 57, did not disclose why he was retiring from Congress.

Separately on Tuesday, Democrat Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA) announced he will not be seeking reelection this year.

McNerney said he will keep working for the people of his district throughout the remainder of his term.

The latest retirements spell trouble for Pelosi.

Tuesday’s two retirements now mean 28 incumbent Democrats won’t seek reelection in November.
