Snowe's Staff Caught by Surprise

Maine GOP strategist Matthew Gagnon says Sen. Olympia Snowe's (R-ME) "reason for taking a pass on re-election, especially when she was so enthusiastically running up to this point, and especially as close to the filing deadline as this is, are mysterious. As I said before, this kind of thing does not happen in politics."

"I am told her own staff was unaware of this decision until just hours before the statement went out -- just long enough to actually work on the release and send it out."
