Heath Shuler Won’t Seek Reelection

North Carolina Democrats are rapidly running out of incumbents.

Congressman┬áHeath Shuler (D-NC) has decided against running for reelection in the state’s 11th congressional district, likely handing the historically Republican district back to the Grand Old Party.

Following redistricting changes, the 11th district gained more Republican voters and made Shuler’s chance of holding his seat more unlikely to succeed. The conservative Democrat simply bowed to reality.
