(CNN) - CNN confirms that Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico will announce later Friday that he will not run for re-election next year.
That will bring to 4 the number of Democratic senators not running for re-election next year.
Well if NM could elect Susan Martinez , a Pub guv, they can elect a conserv Pub for Jeff's seat. The more we see about 2012 is that there might be as many as 13 Dem seats that could change if Pubs put up strong CenterRight candidates to win them.
Bill Richardson should be a good replacement.
Another dumbocrap elects to "retire" rather than go down to DEFEAT !!!!
No problema....there is Bill Richardson to stop any tea party nut.
