    Wow! That was unexpected. The Democrats cannot be happy about this. With North Dakota's heavily conservative tilt, the GOP will almost certainly pick up this seat in November.

    Now you see why they so badly want to pass their agenda quickly.

    I heard, fwiw, that the governor, a Republican, was planning on running.
    No, the word is in the street. Anyone who doesn't have a really secure seat is going to be running scared until after Nov. The bloodletting has started. Let it flow!

    Congress might have over 420 Republicans after next election. The only safe seat is Barney Frank, even
    Pelosi is a coin flip now
