Republican Indiana Rep. Victoria Spartz said Friday that she will not run for reelection in 2024.

Spartz is currently serving as the U.S. Representative for Indiana’s 5th congressional district.

She was elected to the position in 2020, as a member of the Republican Party.

“It’s been my honor representing Hoosiers in the Indiana State Senate and U.S. Congress and I appreciate the strong support on the ground. 2024 will mark seven years of holding elected office and over a decade in Republican politics. I won a lot of tough battles for the people and will work hard to win a few more in the next two years. However, being a working mom is tough and I need to spend more time with my two high school girls back home, so I will not run for any office in 2024,” Spartz announced in a statement.

Before entering politics, Spartz worked in the financial services industry and owned a small business. She has also served in the Indiana State Senate.

Spartz slammed President Joe Biden’s response to the Russian incursion, claiming that the US did not arm Ukraine swiftly enough.

Spartz has also slammed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

She encouraged the US to monitor military supplies to Ukraine, citing corruption concerns, and resisted proposals to impose a no-fly zone over eastern Europe.

Spartz is the first 118th Congress member to announce their retirement.
