, a progressive host and former press secretary for President Joe Biden, voiced deep concerns this weekend about the climate of fear and violence, supposedly towards journalists, following the near assassination of former President .

During an appearance on ' “” with , Psaki addressed the tension and the possibility of violence in the wake of the assassination attempt. She emphasized that attributing the attack to Democrats and the media only heightens fears and escalates the risk.

Two more Democrats are joining the party's exodus from Congress.

Reps. (Calif.) and (R.I.) revealed this afternoon that they'll be joining the more than two dozen House Democrats making this term their last.

The latest announcements come as poll numbers point to a midterm shellacking. Indeed, Gallup reported yesterday that political party preferences shifted from a decisive nine-point Democratic advantage in 2021 to a clear five-point Republican edge in 2022.

California's new congressional map made McNerney's district significantly more competitive. Under the right circumstance, he could've faced a strong challenge. Langevin's district is safer for Democrats, but no one likes being in the minority.

McNerney explained his decision on Twitter:

Hot Air adds:

The Sacramento Bee reports that McNerney's decision to leave the new 9th district means another incumbent Democrat, Rep. Josh Harder, will jump into that race. As for Rep. Langevin, he made his announcement in a column for the Providence Journal:

For the last 37 years, I have woken up every day with one goal in mind: serving the people of Rhode Island. After all, I love this state, and I love the people who live here. It has been the privilege of a lifetime to represent Rhode Islanders as a delegate and secretary to the Rhode Island Constitutional Convention, as State Representative, as Secretary of State, and now, as a United States Congressman…

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. And while I don't know what's next for me just yet, whatever I do will always be in service of Rhode Island.

He also posted a video:

Langevin's decision was called “shocking” by Politico which notes that last April he had vowed to run again.

However, Democrats did get some good news today when former Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette (R) announced that he would not be running in Michigan's redrawn 8th District.

So, what do you think? Are you confident that there are still a large number of Democrats preparing to announce their retirement? We look forward to hearing your thoughts below!
