 Jim Moran to announce retirement
By: Jake Sherman
January 15, 2014 08:20 AM EST

Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran will retire after 23 years in the House, according to multiple Democratic sources.

The retirement is the third for Democrats this week: on Monday, Rep. George Miller (Calif.) said he would leave Congress after 40 years and Rep. Bill Owens (N.Y.) announced Tuesday he would forgo re-election in 2014.

Moran’s northern Virginia seat is heavily Democratic, and is unlikely to be competitive in November: President Barack Obama won 68 percent of the vote in both 2012 and 2008, and Moran coasted with 65 percent of the vote in 2012. The Democratic primary is expected to be competitive, though, since Moran has had a hold on the district since 1991.



Moran, a longtime former Alexandria, Va., city official, is expected to make the announcement Wednesday morning, according to party sources.

Something is rotten in Denmark for these otherwise safe Dems to be jumping ship en masse.

The crash is coming and they want to be long gone and far away as possible?

They think by retiring, that they will shed any guilt or responsibility?
