Stupak to Retire

Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) will announce his re-election plans today at a news conference, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Marc Ambinder says top Democrats briefed last night we're told he'll retire.

Stupak's retirement gives the Democrats 18 open House seats to defend while Republicans have 20 open seats.

However, Stupak's seat will be one of the harder seats for Democrats to retain. The Cook Political Report moves it from Solid Democratic to Toss Up.
