A solidly Democratic district.

Sarbanes had once been considered a potential future candidate for U.S. Senate, where his father, Paul Sarbanes once served. That seat is currently held by Sen. Ben Cardin (D), who is also not seeking re-election in 2024. 
But in recent reports, Sarbanes appeared to be winding down his fundraising efforts. He raised just $2,000 in the second quarter of this year. 
Since he was first elected in 2006 to succeed Cardin — who succeeded his father in the upper chamber — the younger Sarbanes has been a leading voice for campaign finance reform in Congress.

So far, five Democrats and no Republicans have announced they are running to succeed Sarbanes.

Other dropouts:
Debbie Lesko, R, AZ-8.  (11/28/2023
Anna Eshoo.  D, CA-16.  (11/29/2023)
Tony Cardenas, D, CA-29.  (11/29/2023)
Ken Buck, R,CO-4.  (1128//2023)
Victoria Spartz, R, IN-5.  )(11/28/2023)
