Another Rat Flees Dem Sinking Ship

Another Demorat is jumping off the sinking ship. Rep. Vic Snyder (D-Ark.) announced that he will be retiring at the end of his term, citing the difficult political environment that he would have faced to win an eighth term in the House. “I have concluded that these election-year forces are no match for the persuasive and powerful attraction of our three one-year old boys under the leadership of their three-year old brother, and I have decided not to run for re-election.”
It must be mere happenstance that Snyden was one of the most vulnerable House Democrats, with a SurveyUSA poll released today showing him trailing his Republican challenger Tim Griffin by 17 points!
Synden voted for health care reform and publicly defended it despite polls showing a majority of his constituents disapproved. He also voted for the cap-and-trade energy bill that’s not viewed favorably in his district. The seven-term congressman hadn’t been raising any money for a tough re-election and his campaign account was virtually empty.
Snyder is the 11th House Democrat to announce his retirement. — and Republicans are aggressively contesting nine of those open seats. To read the rest of the Politico article, CLICK HERE.
