Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry (D) will announce plans to retire after seven terms, according to two sources familiar with his plans.
The move would make him the second Arkansas Democrat – after Rep. Vic Snyder – to announce plans this month to forego a re-election bid.
Berry would be the twelfth House Democrat to retire this year, and the fifth from a district John McCain won in 2008, and Republicans are certain to target his seat.
