Democrat Earl Pomeroy Won't Run For North Dakota Senate Seat


It's been an interesting last 24 hours for Senate Democrats. Yesterday, they were more likely than not to re-elect Byron Dorgan in North Dakota (Hoeven was not in the race, and there was no top-tier opponent) and lose Chris Dodd in Connecticut. Now both seats are open, and as it currently stands they are likely to lose in North Dakota and keep Connecticut.

Late Update: DSCC Chairman Robert Menendez (D-NJ) confirmed the news about Pomeroy to Greg Sargent.
