Washington Post:

Add yet another name to the GOP retirement list. Arizona Rep. John Shadegg (R) is on the verge of announcing that he will not run for re-election, according to Republican sources.

Shadegg is in his 7th term in the House and is the former chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee. He served briefly as House GOP Policy Chairman and then lost a bid for House Majority Leader in 2006.

Shadegg will be the 22nd House Republican to announce his retirement this cycle. Another three GOP lawmakers are running for other offices. Read on...

This makes 29 Republicans jumping ship so far, and it's a safe bet Shadegg won't be the last to go. This is great news for Democrat Bob Lord who is running for Shadegg's seat. Please go to Lord's website and show him some love. You can read Rep. Shadegg's full statement here.
