Update: Per Todd Rehm, Jack Murphy says “I’m still running”.
Per Zpolitics, Senator Jack Murphy is set to retire. We covered two of his potential challengers here yesterday (Lauren McDonald III and Michael Williams). Per the comments in that post, Jack Schiff was also mounting a primary challenge.
The retirement adds to that of Majority Leader Ronnie Chance, Majority Whip Cecil Staton, and Savannah Republican Buddy Carter who is running for Congress. That’s at least four new Freshmen Senators likely in the very young Republican Senate caucus. Possibly more, as we’ll see this week with qualifying who is running for re-election, and who draws primary challenges.
