Dave Weldon Retires
Republicans have another open seat in the House to defend. Dave Weldon has announced his retirement. Republicans have one more headache they don't need going into a presidential election year.
The timing is odd, considering Weldon's daughter Katie was recently arrested and videotaped in a bar fight. Conservatives know that brawls outside of bars are the moral bedrock of family values.
The DCCC was targeting the seat before Weldon's annoucement. CBS News reports Democrat Nancy Higgs will announce her candidacy.
Update: Sinfonian is going against the convention wisdom. He predicts Republican Mike Haridopolos will run.
Haridopolos will not provide citizens his positions on issues. Haridopolos failed the Vote Smart political courage test. Transparency is not his forte.
