Illeana Ros-Lehtinen Won’t Run Again

The Herald says Exclusive: Ros-Lehtinen to retire from Congress next year.

Guess she didn’t want to become a Democrat.

By setting the open election for an off-year, a time where Republicans usually do better than in Presidential elections, IRL makes one last gift to the GOP. Nevertheless, this is now a Democratic-leaning district, so there should be a mad scramble in both parties as candidates jockey for their party’s nomination.

  1. Just me says:

    Will there be an off year election? The article I read in the Herald said that she would serve out the rest of her term. Did it get reported differently in another article/source?
