28 and Counting

Rep. Tom Davis made it 28 yesterday ... 28 Republican Congressmen -- some of them in the top leadership -- who are giving up their seats in Congress rather than face the tide of history this November.

Davis was a "moderate" representing northern Virginia, the D.C. suburbs, which is strongly Democratic these days.

Only five Dems have announced their retirement, making the open-seat calculus very unfavorable for the Republican Party this year. (NYTimes piece on the situation here)
