Deutch will become the CEO of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), and in his statement he highlighted an “unprecedented rise in antisemitism” in the U.S. and around the globe.

Deutch, 55, has represented Florida in Congress since 2010 but moved to the 22nd Congressional District from the 21st in 2017 after redistricting.

The race before Deutch’s announcement was not considered competitive by The Cook Political Report, and Deutsch won with 56 percent of the vote in 2020.

CBS Miami first reported on Deutch’s decision to not run for reelection. Deutch plans to stay in Congress until Sept. 30, when the House is set to go on recess ahead of the midterm elections.

“Beyond foreign policy, we have also seen an unprecedented rise in antisemitism in our own country and abroad, and I have been at the forefront of the Congressional response as the founding co-chair of the House Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Antisemitism,” Deutch said in his announcement.

The stampede continues.
