    I think many of them realize they have no chance come election time.
    It looks much better for them if they quit rather than get the boot!

    I'm sorry McX don't mean to call you out on your post but you placed an "L" in Pubic.
    I just thought I would point that out as I know you don't want to mislead anyone.

    This isn't the first time 20 legislators didn't run for reelection in an election cycle. Out of 132 legislators not counting offices like governor and AG I don't feel that is nearly enough turnover to be considered substantioal and not nearly enough to be considered effective in getting fresh blood into Madison. We need fresh faces sitting in at least 25% of the seats to be able to make substantial changes in the way the state does business.

    Right now we have 1 independent in office, it should be 10% or better. There needs to be enough of them that the established parties have to take their views into account. It's our freedoms and our money they are fooling around with and frankly I don't trust most of them.
