Virginia Democrat Senator Jim Webb Not Running In 2012
And another Democrat decides not to run in the next election:
Sen. Jim Webb, D-VA, announced today that he has decided not to seek re-election in the Senate, passing up what was expected to be a tough race to retain his seat in Congress.
“After much thought and consideration I have decided to return to the private sector, where I have spent most of my professional life, and will not seek re-election in 2012,” Webb said in a statement.
And the Democrats thought that passing ObamaCare on a strict party-line vote was the ticket to long-term Democrat majorities. Turns out–as I’ve said before–it’s more like a ticket to long-term Democrat minorities.
