TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan — A Democratic congressman targeted for defeat by largely conservative activists in the Tea Party for his crucial role in securing approval of the health care overhaul said Friday he would retire from Congress this year.
U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak told The Associated Press he could have won re-election and insisted he wasn’t being chased from the race by the Tea Party. The Tea Party Express, a cross-country bus tour holding rallies in various cities, planned an event this week in Stupak’s Michigan district calling for his ouster.
