- Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut), whom Judicial Watch identified as one of the ten most corrupt politicians in 2009, is quitting because plummeting poll numbers indicate he’s not likely to succeed at winning a 6th term in office. (H/t bkeyser!)
- Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota), a “moderate” Democrat in a Republican-leaning state, says he “has other interests to pursue.”
- Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, considered to be a rising star within the Democratic Party, says he “needs to spend more time with his family.”
According to Washington Times, five other DemoRats are vulnerable in their reelection bids and are trailing Republicans in states where Obama and ObamaCare are increasingly unpopular. Among the five are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas.
My only regret is that Dodd, Dorgan, and others of their ilk will be collecting handsome pensions until they meet their Maker for their final judgment.
Upwards and onwards to November 2010!
