U.S. Rep. John Katko, R-Camillus, announced he will not seek re-election in a statement to news organizations Friday. Katko, one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach former President Donald Trump, said he would not run for a fifth term “so that I can enjoy my family and life in a fuller and more present way,” the Associated Press reported. After two decades as a federal prosecutor, Katko was elected to the House of Representatives in 2014. He was re-elected for a fourth term in 2020, besting Democratic challenger Dana Balter. The Camillus native and Syracuse University College of Law graduate is the top Republican on the House Committee on Homeland Security and a member of the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure. Katko currently serves New York’s 24th Congressional District, which encompasses Onondaga, Cayuga and Wayne counties, as well as the western portion of Oswego County. Katko’s district was one that could look radically different under redistricting with New York losing a congressional seat following the 2020 Census. The competing Republican and Democrat-backed plans presented by the New York State Independent Redistricting Commission would both combine Utica, Syracuse, Cortland and Ithaca into a single district. Either option would bring Katko into the same district as U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New Hartford, who currently serves New York’s 22nd Congressional District. Story: Border security, election integrity, manufacturing: Claudia Tenney lists 2022 prioritiesStory: Claudia Tenney weighs in on elections, critical race theory and Biden's Build Back Better planState lawmakers rejected the pair of proposals earlier this week, setting the stage for the congressional and state Assembly and Senate maps to be redrawn.
