North Dakota Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad announced today that he will not seek reelection, creating a potentially prime pickup opportunity for Republicans in a GOP-leaning state.
“After months of consideration, I have decided not to seek reelection in 2012,” Conrad said in a letter to constituents. “There are serious challenges facing our state and nation, like a $14 trillion debt and America’s dependence on foreign oil. It is more important I spend my time and energy trying to solve these problems than to be distracted by a campaign for reelection.”
There is literally nothing to say about this man. Maybe he’ll finally have some time to open up that cute little bakery in the middle of the Dakota wilderness? Maybe he will cut $7 in debt and secure a small puddle of petroleum for America? Maybe the entire world won’t forget he existed approximately five minutes after his funeral?
