Looks like the High-Queen RINO is calling it quits
Sen. Olympia Snowe shocked the political world Tuesday with an announcement that she would not seek re-election to the U.S. Senate.
“After an extraordinary amount of reflection and consideration, I am announcing today that I will not be a candidate for re-election to the United States Senate,” the three-term senator said in a statement..
“After 33 years in the Congress this was not an easy decision. My husband and I are in good health. We have laid an exceptionally strong foundation for the campaign, and I have no doubt I would have won re-election.”
No doubt the seat was hers, when somebody has been in elected office for that long people get used to them, and they because “THE X”. Think Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd, or FDR.
There’s talk on the news right now that one of the several “Progressive” Democrats wandering around Southern Maine might have the best shot at the seat. Honestly when it comes to a RINO and a “Progressive”, I’d pick the “Progressive” every time, because at least you have an honest fiend, and you stand a chance of liking the person who runs against them. With Snowe and Collins in Maine it was either the RINO or the Moonbat, and that’s a bitter pill for any conservative voter to swallow.
Who knows what the future of Maine will be, but it’ll be nice to see a new face.
