    Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), who had a central role in the health reform fight as the leader of anti-abortion Democrats, plans to announce Friday that he will not run for reelection, a Democratic official said. Without Stupak on the ballot, the seat becomes an immediate pickup opportunity for Republicans.

    "Now with health care done, he’s retiring," a friend said. "He has thought about retiring for the last three cycles, but was always talked into staying: to elect John Kerry to help end the war, to elect a Democratic majority to get health care done."

John Dingell (D-Mich.), the dean of the Wolverine State delegation.Republicans immediately attributed Stupak's decision to step down as a direct consequence of his health care vote.

    Perhaps he's scared due to the death threats he has allegedly received.

    Anyone that threatened him is an idiot.

    However I'm sure he already knew that he was going to get slaughterd in the Novermber elections, He already had one Pro-Abortion Dem come out to run against him. I'm sure some Conservatives are looking to get in as well

    Good riddance. History will remember Stupak as a coward if history remembers him at all.
