Via USA Today:
Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska has told supporters he will not seek re-election. His decision was first reported by Politico.Yeah, right. Nelson is probably retiring because he disgraced himself during the Obamacare fight and is radioactive.
In his statement, Nelson said: "Simply put: It is time to move on."
Nelson, 70, was facing a tough fight for a third term. His retirement improves the GOP's chances of picking up the Nebraska Senate seat the Democrat has held since 2000, and it enhances the odds of a Republican takeover of the Senate in 2012.
Ditto for Bart Stupak in Michigan.
Both men went to the wall for Obama and this is where it got them.
