A Rare Democratic Retirement in the House
Hooley is only the third House Democrat to announce retirement plans this cycle. Twenty-one Republicans are retiring, while three more Republicans and three Democrats are running for other office.
Oregon's 5th district, situated south of Portland and along part of the state's Pacific coast, is a pickup opportunity for Republicans. Hooley won reelection by 11 points in 2006 and 9 points in 2004, but President Bush narrowly carried the district in both 2000 and 2004.
