Ben Nelson: Another Democrat Bites the Dust

Senator Ben Nelson, since his "Cornhusker Kickback," has become a 'dead man walking' as he approached his 2012 Senate Election in his home state of Nebraska. In this heavily Republican state, it's going to take a miracle to win re-election, despite his long service in the Senate. In order to save some face and to avoid the drubbing he will receive this November, Nelson has bowed out of the election, choosing to retire (Also being the first Nelson to leave the Senate this year, the second will lose his re-election in Florida this November!)

Even with the possiblity of Former Senator Bob Kerrey considering a run, who will move back to Nebraska, after having left for the big city, back in 2000, to be President of the New School in New York, it is a near given this seat goes Republican and one closer step to the Republicans winning back control of the Senate!
