His retirement comes just three months before the congressional elections. The cutoff date for the party to put a Republican candidate on the ballot is Aug. 8. LaTourette could announce his intention to retire but delay official notification until then. That would allow the GOP to avoid a special election and choose a replacement candidate.

Good plan, democracy is so messy when you let actual voters into the picture. Amirite?

/Sad to see Boehner is gonna lose his long time drinking buddy or "confidante" as TFA so delicately puts it.

fenianfark: LaTourette was one of the last of a dying breed - a moderate, union-friendly Republican who stood up to the right flank of the House Republican Conference.

Damnit, we need more Republicans like this, not less.


If by "stood up to the right flank" you really mean "voted in lockstep with", then no, we don't need more Republicans like this.

I honestly don't know a lot about his voting record, but he did piss off these guys.

LaTourette is in my district. He's a relatively reasonable guy. He's also a slam dunk, he hasn't faced a serious opponent in years.

My guess is that good ol' Kucinich is sporting a woodie right now, seriously thinking about running for this district, which is heavily GOP but lacks any politicians with big names.

I'm honestly expecting it to go Teatarded. The rubes out in Geauga and Ashtabula counties would run their dicks over a cheese grater before they voted for Kucinich.

Very possible. After all, the democrats put Capri Cafaro on the ballot before, which shows how red the district is that they didn't even try. Still, I'm sure Dennis will be in the area within 48 hours, assessing the situation.

Oh, no doubt. He might be able to drum up some support in the minority communities in Painesville, Ashtabula, and western Lake county, but I don't see him getting the slightest bit of traction in places like Chardon or Geneva. Not enough, anyway.

Unless you have a time machine and can bring a few examples back, I think we're all shiat outta luck.

You're probably right. The only tough part will be putting together a candidacy in 90 days. Then again, the area is solidly red. I live in Aurora.

It's a strange district: it has Mentor, Stow,
