Republican House members are leaving Congress at the fastest pace in modern history, according to elections data compiled by Daily Kos. 

So far, 37 House Republicans have announced they are retiring, running for another office or resigning outright. Such an exodus usually precedes the beginning of every primary season, but this year is shaping up to break records.

"This is more Republican retirements than any year since at least 1952 (and possibly much earlier than that)," Daily Kos Elections editor Daniel Donner tweeted last week.

By contrast, the comparable number for House Democrats totals 18.
