The political extinction of Senate workhorses might create significant gaps.

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) cited verses from the Old Testament and New Testament as he considered retirement. Kaine will run for another six-year term in 2024. Four others in the Democratic caucus face similar questions about whether to run for re-election. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) are deciding whether to seek reelections in 2024. Many centrists fear the Senate’s core center could be eviscerated by next year’s midterms.

The Senate is frustrating. Things don’t move fast, Kaine says.
