Another Vulnerable House Democrat Retires

The Nashville Post reports that Rep. Bart Gordon (D-TN) has announced that he will retire from Congress at the end of this term.

The Hotline: "Gordon leaves open a seat Dems could have trouble defending. Sen. John McCain won the district in '08 by a 62%-37% margin, and national GOPers instantly characterized it as a lean-GOP seat that is likely to eventually fall into their hands"

Update: The Cook Political Report moves TN-6 from Lean Democrat to Likely Republican.
