Myrick Won't Run For Re-Election

February 7, 2012

Updated at 3:27 p.m.

Rep. Sue Myrick, a nine-term North Carolina Republican, won't seek a tenth term this year, she said in a posting on her Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.

"After thoughtful discussion with my family, I have decided not to run for another term in Congress," Myrick said in the statement.

Myrick is the seventh Republican to say she will retire from politics this year and the 33rd member overall to announce the end of her career in Congress. First elected in the Republican sweep of 1994, she serves as chairwoman of the Select Committee on Intelligence's Terrorism, HUMINT, Analysis and Counterintelligence subcommittee.

After redistricting, Myrick's new Charlotte-area district would remain a safe Republican seat. Sen. John McCain won the district with 54 percent of the vote, while President George W. Bush won the new seat with 64 percent in 2004.

Myrick, a former Charlotte mayor who lost a race for U.S. Senate in 1992 before running for Congress, never faced serious Democratic opposition during her time in the House.
