    Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry to retire

    Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry is expected to announce his retirement tomorrow morning, according to three sources briefed on the decision.

    Berry will become the sixth Democrat in a competitive seat to leave in the last two months but the first to announce his retirement since the party's special election loss in Massachusetts last Tuesday.

    "The message coming out of the Massachusetts special election is clear: No Democrat is safe," said National Republican Congressional Committee communications director Ken Spain.

    yes - THEY ARE running from THEIR constituents - but the problem here is that since they won't be trying to get reelected - they're less likely to be responsive to pressure from the voters. . . . :(
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
