Olympia Snowe Calls It Quits!
According to the New York Times, Maine’s Senator Olympia Snowe, the mother of all RINOs, has decided not to run for reelection this November.
Ms. Snowe, a moderate who cast key votes in bills that were dear to Democrats including the stimulus bill, was facing a Tea Party-backed challenger, but one who had failed to gain much traction in a state where Ms. Snowe remained popular and well known.
Ms. Snowe said the lack of comity and bipartisanship in the current Congress was a key motivating factor to her sudden retirement…
Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine and Ms. Snowe’s ally and sometimes rival, said Tuesday afternoon in a prepared statement she was “absolutely devastated” by the news.
