Two fixtures of the Democratic party's presence in the House of Representatives will retire after 58 years of combined service. Representative Mike Doyle, a Pennsylvania Democrat, and Representative David Price, a North Carolina Democrat, announced that they would not seek reelection. Professor Grant Reeher expects each seat to remain blue. "In North Carolina's case that's being driven by the growth in that state and the number of young people that are being attracted to the areas," Reeher says. "And in Pennsylvania, with the renaissance in Pittsburgh, the new people that it would have attracted would have been more Democratic."
