Indiana GOP Rep. Victoria Spartz said Friday she won't seek reelection in 2024, effectively also removing herself as a possible, top-tied Republican Senate candidate next year.

"It's been my honor representing Hoosiers in the Indiana State Senate and U.S. Congress and I appreciate the strong support on the ground," Spartz said in a statement. "2024 will mark seven years of holding elected office and over a decade in Republican politics."

Spartz was reportedly considering running for Senate in 2024 for the seat of GOP Sen. Mike Braun, who will run for governor.

"I won a lot of tough battles for the people and will work hard to win a few more in the next two years," the Ukraine-born Spartz also said. "However, being a working mom is tough, and I need to spend more time with my two high school girls back home, so I will not run for any office in 2024."
