Longtime Senate Democrat Ben Cardin won't seek re-election
79-year-old Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, won't see re-election

By Danielle Wallace | Fox News


Longtime Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin reportedly said he won't seek re-election, clearing a path for a new face to join the Senate.

"It’s time," Cardin, 79, told The Baltimore Sun in an interview at his Pikesville home. "I always knew this election cycle would be the one I would be thinking about not running again, so it’s not something that hit me by surprise. I enjoy life. There are other things I can do."

"Democrats are quickly realizing that the Senate won't be any fun for them when Republicans retake the majority in 2024," National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesperson, Tate Mitchell, told Fox News.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

Fishy prognostication?  A lefty soon to be replaced by an ultra lefty.

It’s Maryland

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
