After more than a week of being bombarded with pressure
from Tea Partiers angry about his "yes" vote for Obamacare, Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., will announce his retirement today.
Top Democrat officials confirmed
this morning that the congressman will be stepping down at the end of this term, capping off an 18-year career in the House of Representatives.
Charlevoix County Commissioner Connie Saltonstall
will probably take Stupak's place as the party's nominee.
