Doolittle Out

On January 10, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

Roll Call reports that Representative John Doolittle of California’s District 4 will announce today that he will not seek re-election to a tenth term. He has scheduled a press conference at 10:30am (in two hours) for this purpose.

This is great news. Between an FBI investigation (and raid) from his Jack Abramoff connection, the fact that RedState-endorsed challenger Eric Egland was out-raising him money, and that he was poised to lose in a Bush +24, Schwarzenegger +50 district, it was time to him to go.

What a bad day for Charlie Brown, the Democratic challenger, but a good day for Republicans. Doolittle definitely out of the race should put this district out of reach of Democratic hopes.
