Longtime GOP Congressman To Not Seek Re-Election In 2014   Leave a comment

Given the demographics of Florida’s 13th Congressional District, Democrats have to be salivating at the thought of picking up what was considered a marginally safe(Cook PVI R +1) district from the GOP next year…quoting ABC News:

Republican Rep. C.W. Bill Young, Florida’s longest-serving member of Congress and a lawmaker who has been influential on military spending during his 43 years in Washington, has decided to retire.

Young said he will serve the rest of his term, which ends next year. His district is expected to be up for grabs, and Wednesday’s announcement makes it likely that Democrats will pour additional resources into the district during the 2014 election.

The 82-year-old Florida lawmaker first announced his decision in the Tampa Bay Times. His spokesman, Harry Glenn, confirmed it.

As I said above, if the DCCC is smart, they have to be looking at this news and adding this now-open district to their list of targeted districts for 2014.
