Happy New Year - Another Dem Recruit Heads for the Hills

The Hill reports, they're dropping like flies :

Democrats have lost yet another touted recruit, this time in Kansas.

State Sen. Laura Kelly (D) just announced her withdrawal from the race to face Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.). She becomes the fifth formidable recruit to bow out in recent weeks.

“I have been forced to make a decision between honoring the pledge I made to the people in my Senate district and my firm conviction that the people of the 2nd congressional district deserve a truly independent voice in Congress," Kelly said in a statement.

“This has been a very hard decision, but it is the right one.”

Laura Kelly was cited in a late October DCCC memo lauding the Democrats' recruiting success for the coming 2010 midterm elections.  Must be like a cold bucket of water on the Speaker of the House who was willing to sacrifice some of her Blue Dogs  in order to ram her left-wing agenda through the House.    We'll be looking forward to taking her broom in surrender come November.
