Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., announced Friday that he would be resigning from Congress early, leaving the House GOP with a slim one-vote majority. 

He confirmed in a statement on X that he will resign effective April 19.

"After conversations with my family, I have made the decision to resign my position as a member of the House of Representatives for Wisconsin's Eighth Congressional District effective April 19, 2024," Gallagher wrote.

Other House members that have announced their resignations recently include Reps. Ken Buck, R-Colo., and former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.
