Sen. Bob Graham has already bowed out of the presidential race, now he has announced that he will not run for re-election to the Senate. "Grahams decision not to run for re-election further complicates Democrats hopes to regain control of the Senate, where Republicans hold a 51-48 majority, with one Democratic-leaning independent.
He would be the fourth Southern Democrat to retire at the end of his term, giving Republicans opportunities for strong gains in a region of the country where President Bush figures to run strongly in 2004. Three other southern Democrats have already announced they arent running for re-election: Sens. Zell Miller of Georgia, John Edwards of North Carolina and Ernest Fritz Hollings of South Carolina." Good news for the GOP.
