Ray Musto retiring


TL: State Senator Raphael “Ray” Musto (D-Luzerne/Carbon/Monroe) announced today that he will not seek re-election and retire from the Senate at the end of his current term.

"After nearly 40 years of public service to the citizens of the Northeast and seven terms serving the 14th Senatorial District, it is time to retire from the Senate," Musto said in a release.
.
Expect a crowded Democratic primary in the race to succeed him and maybe the Republicans might even find a candidate this time. He was unopposed in 2006 even after his vote for the 2AM pay raise. I'm looking forward to reading a recap of his career from our local political historian.

You all are morons. Musto is a great man and a powerful politician...

There will be no one to replace his shoes!

"Great Man" and "Powerful Politician" seldom go together. As for replacements, the Commonwealth is full of ambitious middle-aged white guys, so I'm sure someone will step up.

It's a great day in PA and it's about time! After he gets his brother the job as Court in Administrator will he get his niece a nice judgeship before he leaves office?
