Interesting question to start Monday morning: How many nervous House Democrats from red districts in places like Kansas will follow Dennis Moore into retirement?
U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, a Democrat who confounded the GOP by winning six consecutive elections in a heavily Republican district, will not seek re-election next year, key Democrats said Sunday.
Moore, who represented Johnson, Wyandotte and a portion of Douglas counties, will issue a statement today explaining his decision and outlining his plans. Moore, 64, is expected to finish out his term, which ends in January 2011.
We’ll have to see who jumps in, but that looks like a seat that the GOP should win easily.
