More Democrat Flies Dropping … US Rep (MA-D) William Delahunt Will Not Seek Re-election to Congress


How is that “Hopee, Changee” thing working out for Democrat politicians? Another one bites the dust … The Scott Brown effect continues in Massachusetts and Democrats running for the retirement hills in the wake of the Obama agenda and the backlash of 2010.

Seven term Massachusetts Democrat William Delahunt has announced that he will not seek reelection in 2010. Delahunt claims that his reasons for ending his 40 year career is not political. Of course it’s not. Delahunt said that “Life is about change.” I guess Obama’s “hope and change” is not what the Massachusetts Congressman had expected.

Of course Delahunts departure from Congress has nothing to do with the backlash against the Obama agenda, the Scott Brown Senate win where Brown carried his disctric by 60% in the Bay State or his ties to Amy Bishop, the college professor in Alabama who gunned down three colleagues and in 1986 killed her brother in Massachusetts.

Representative William Delahunt will not seek re-election to Congress, the seven-term Democrat will announce tomorrow, ending a nearly 40-year career in elected office and giving Republicans hope of capturing the seat, which stretches from Cape Cod to the South Shore.

“It’s got nothing to do with politics,” the Quincy Democrat said today. “Life is about change. I think it’s healthy. It’s time.”

The 68-year-old lawmaker said he has been considering leaving the House for several years, but was talked out of it two years ago by the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who convinced his friend he should stay and help President Obama with his first-term agenda.

Red State asks the obvious question … who should we target NEXT!

      a lot of buyers’ remorse for these older politicians. they will vote for deathcare then chicken out and retire before the backlash comes around.

      I read he campaigned on only being a one or two term politician, of course he never kept his promise I wonder of his seeping under the carpet Amy Bishop killing her brother had anything to do with this?

      #3—Perhaps 5 was an over optimistic number- but we can still dream here in Mass. Here is the first State Rep currently being challenged in his upcoming election:

      Delahunt. He’ll be first to go, IMO. Then will be Mike “..a Rep will never win this election” Capuano. How I would love to see….********

      hahahah, told you !

      Since this guy didn’t do his job by prosecuting the case against Amy Bishop for murdering her brother, he may be in for an indictment for some criminal charges relating to the case.
