Stupak to Retire
Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) is scheduled to announce his retirement today, according to multiple media outlets. His decision complicates Democratic efforts to hold his competitive 1st District seat, which encompasses northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Stupak is reportedly scheduled to make the official announcement during a 12:30 p.m. news conference at Northern Michigan University.
The anti-abortion Democrat had recently faced criticism for voting in support of the president’s health care reform plan.
