here are a few:

Lynn Woolsey: Will be 75 in 2012. Age is probably the reason she said she may retire
Bob Filner: may run for mayor of San Diego
Jeff Flake: may run for US Senate
Sam Johnson: will be 82 in 2012
Ralph Hall: will be 89 in 2012
John Conyers: will be 83 in 2012
Charlie Rangel: will be 82 in 2012
Ron Paul: might run for an office or retire due to age
Pete Stark: will be 81 in 2012

Pete Stark might also be a victim of the commission. Conyers and Rangel don't strike me as the retirement type.

How? By pairing him up with Jerry McNerney?

We know that Murphy in CT will be running for a promotion...

I think Frank Wolf and Colin Peterson could retire. They're both big time survivors, so they're districts could easily flip.

Howard Coble and Roscoe Bartlett are both very old. Hopefully at least Bartlett, my old congressman will step down. But he may stay for life since his district could be packed to 70% GOP so that Maryland can be 7-1 in favor of the Democrats.

Bartlett is going to be in that seat until he dies.

Ralph Hall: will be 89 in 2012

Keeping Rockwall County in his district because it's his home is requiring worse and worse contortions of the map, it seems.

I wish I could get Tom Cole of Oklahoma's 4th district (my Congressman) to retire, but I'm afraid (1) that won't happen, and (2) he would be replaced by an even nuttier Republican.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

I ran against Ralph Hall in the Republican primary and I plan on running again whether he retires or not. 
My name is Lou Gigliotti and I have been in Texas for over 27 years.  I run a small business in Wylie Texas called LG Motorsports.  We build and prepare performance Corvettes and Camaro race cars and track cars for customers all over the world. 

Looking forward to a great March Texas primary in one year.  It was my first time running for any office.  I have a degree in Math and most of my MBA.  Have run my own business most of my life, and I am not happy with the Theft By Government from the working men and Women who are the producers.

Thanks

Actually, Jeff Flake has already announced that he will run for the Senate. Ron Paul is considering a Senate bid, probably as a last hurrah for his exit from public affairs.

Also, Joe Donnelly has said that he may retire from the House due to redistricting, in which case he would lose to Jackie Walorski. I would expect him to run for Governor, or maybe Senator.

Good luck with that, but Ralph Hall is unbeatable, IMHO.

Wow, Lou. You're pretty nuts.

But then most TX Republicans are.

"Texas might be the last free country in America"? Huh

To Lou,

if you're interested in politics, I would suggest starting out at the lower level. I believe in the state assembly, a new district is going to be created out of the excess of the current HD 89 and the remaining part of HD 89 will take in parts of HD 70. With a new district, you would probably have an advantage in funding and name recognition.

"Hold elections on one day"? Abolish postal voting?
He has my support on that position, at least.

I believe in the state assembly, a new district is going to be created out of the excess of the current HD 89 and the remaining part of HD 89 will take in parts of HD 70. With a new district, you would probably have an advantage in funding and name recognition.

     Like I say in my new website, "I don't need a job, I don't need a career, I need a Country."  
If you combine the two words, Career and Politician--Run as fast as you can because they are more interested in the Career than the Country.

     Being for Freedom is not very crazy.  I am not sure if some of you like the TSA or Food Police or the new Defense Appropriation Act but we have a government that is out of control and we need some normal people to step in and pull the E-Brake and just stop for a while.  80,000 pages of NEW regulations?  How did we survive before they wrote these?  Really, how did we survive?

    It seems that they only time we are safe is when Congress is on vacation.    

If reelected, Ralph Hall will turn 91 in office, 32 years in office, 24 of them as a Democrat, voting party line except for Defense.
 
     I am fighting the establishment political machine.  My signs have gone missing in Sherman, Emory and Rockwall.  I was not allowed to speak at a GOP function in Rockwall and in Hopkins county because they like Ralph Hall my opponent. 25% of the primary votes are in these two counties.  
       I thought this was AMERICA!


  Yes, Enough is Enough.  


     SO, please go to  LouForCongress web site and check it out.  

thanks

Poor Lou...

Who are you supporting in the National GOP primary? Ron Paul, maybe?
