Two Democratic Senators And Rising Star Governor Won't Seek Reelection

Democratic officials tell The Associated Press that Connecticut's Christopher Dodd plans to make an official announcement today.

North Dakota Democrat Byron Dorgan said yesterday that he won't seek re-election to the Senate in November.

Adding to the party's concerns was word that Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, won't run for a second term in November. Ritter is also expected to make an announcement today.

The decisions come amid rising anti-incumbent sentiment among the electorate. A majority of the country says it's on the wrong track, and the party in power typically gets blamed.
