2012: Kay Bailey Hutchison Retiring

The Washington Times reports:

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison ... won't seek re-election to a fourth full term next year, marking the first retirement of the 2012 election cycle and leaving an open seat Democrats say they'll force Republicans to defend.

Democrats are attempting a bridge too far, but the Tea Party will likely score another victory by replacing "the Olympia Snow of the South" with a more conservative Texan.

Provided the seat is maintained, this is no great loss.

That's a little harsh. Hutchison has a lifetime ACU rating of nearly 90%, whereas Snowe and Collins are in the 40's. I think we will be fortunate to do so well, even if the seat is retained.
