swizzer, explaining his election is easy -- " Vote for ME, I'll give you candy" and they did, - re-election, sheeple. -- "well he's not doing a bad job, and they didn't catch him dating his secretary or carousing at the gay bar, so he must be alright"

TiredOfTax, you do realize these 'losses' you speak of are retirements and not actual election losses right? Does you immaturity and constant inability to not understand logic allow you to understand that? And that they may actually be succeeded by other Democrats…?

'Maybe it is the smart people that are leaving' - how do you explain his election and subsequent re-elections?

Senior appropriator and progressive stalwart James P. Moran will step down at the end of this year, making him the third House Democrat in just three days to announce his retirement.

Owens keeps winning re election in areas that are 2-1 republican. He has broad across the bd appeal. The usual partisan remarks here are ludicrous.

Maybe it is the smart people that are leaving... that would explain liberal democrat victories!

United Van Lines recently published its inbound and outbound moving data for the U.S.

Which States Americans Are Moving To and Leaving The winners: Oregon and the Carolinas. The losers: New Jersey, Illinois, and New York

translation -- "My fun bucket is full. I've had a good time spending your money and not really doing anything. The wife's been nagging I don't spend enough time with the kids and my bank account is almost to the FDIC limit for insurance, so I'll take some time to spend it down"

I believe this seat is a possibility for the republican party. I believe the republicans have an enrollment majority, the fact there will be no incumbent, and a possible backlash to the democrats over this ACA debacle will prove interesting. The biggest problem the republicans face is there are already several announced candidates for the GOP position on the ballot. The republicans got to hope they do not end up with another one of the candidates on the conservative line. Unity here is paramount.

TiredOfTax places the blame at the feet of the Democrats yet again! I don't think most people in our district are as partisan.

Another one bites the dust. I do believe that his seat will be a republican victory? One down... many more to follow!
