Pro-Life Stupak will run again, probably

After days of speculation that Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) might be retiring this year rather than run for reelection, the nine-term congressman finally spoke out himself. And the answer is: A definitive “probably.” The Detroit Free Press reports:

All speculation to the contrary aside, U.S. Rep Bart Stupak says he has every intention of running for re-election this fall.

The Menominee Democrat told the Free Press on Wednesday that he hasn’t made his final decision yet to run for a 10th term — but that’s only because he sits down with his family every two years just before the filing deadline in May to decide.

Democratic party leaders are likely breathing a little easier now.
