FL: Lincoln Diaz-Balart Retires

Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL) will announce later today he will not seek another term,CongressDaily reports this morning.

73% of district residents call themselves Hispanic, while just 16% are white. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) won a narrow 51%-49% victory in the seat.

Lincoln’s brother Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart will abandon his district to run in Lincoln’s, which is seen as tilting more toward the GOP.

What gives with all Republican retirements and not so many Democrat ones?
