Dem retirements picking up speed: Sens. Dodd (CT) & Dorgan (ND)
I guess when the writing on the wall is so bad that the incumbent is losing no matter who the opponent, it's time to get out. Yesterday, Senators Dodd (D-CT) and Dorgan (D-ND) both came to that conclusion, and announced they were not seeking re-election. Also yesterday, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter announced his retirement as well.
The next question is this: Does Harry Reid (D-NV) go down fighting or does he follow Dodd & Dorgan's example?
