Incumbents Retired

Filed under: Congressional races — hannah @ 6:57 am

The number in the House looks to be twenty three. But, since it is by party, it doesn’t take into account incumbents who were eliminated in primaries, such as Cliff Stearn.

The retirement of Howard Berman warms the cockles of this liberal’s heart. It turns out Berman was one of the turncoats who helped pass the AUMF and has resisted reform in our immigration laws. The Democratic old guard is no better than the Republican one.
