Long-time Democrat Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) has announced she would retire next year, ending her 30-year career in Congress.

The news comes a House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's majority crumbles.

“I will retire, and I will recommend to you who is the best to follow me,” Johnson said Saturday.

The Democrat representative did not issue any endorsement.

Dallas News reported Johnson said, “she would be looking for a qualified woman to endorse as successor” with many possible candidates.

“I’ve worked hard. It’s not just a title — it’s a job,” Johnson added.

“It’s been some rugged times, but I have not acknowledged it."

"I was determined that I wouldn’t just be a title. I wanted to deliver.”

Her announcement comes after House Democrats recently passed the infrastructure bill and passed the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act, the Democrats’ reconciliation infrastructure bill.

Pelosi has struggled to keep members in the House.

Meanwhile, speculation has been growing surrounding Nancy Pelosi's own potential retirement.

Last month, House GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy predicted there will be more House Democrats opting for retirement ahead of the "uphill battle" looming with the 2022 midterm elections.

Neon Nettle reported that Reps. David Prince (D-NC) and Mike Doyle (D-PA) opted to retire and will not seek reelection in 2022.

The news came after fellow Democrat and House Budget Committee chair Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky also announced his retirement.

“Once you get past Thanksgiving and members go home, and they’re Democrats, and they’ve been challenged before, and they’re going to get beat up, Congress is not that great."

Mike Berg, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said:

“Smart Democrats are fleeing Congress as fast as humanly possible because they know Democrats’ majority is coming to an end."
