The nine term Rethug stated today he will not seek reelection per The Hill website.
That big-assed sigh of relief you heard came from the RNC. From the writeup:
Embattled Rep. John Doolittle (R-Calif.) announced Thursday afternoon that he would not seek reelection, yielding to pressure from his Republican colleagues to step aside amid a federal investigation into his involvement in the Jack Abramoff scandal.
Speaking at the Maidu Community Center in his California district, Doolittle said he will serve out the remainder of his term but won't run in November's election.
Another one bites the dust..and it just made my day.
