The latest to bow out is Rep. Joe DiPinto, R-Wilmington West, who waited until deep into the night on the General Assembly’s final day to say he would not seek re-election.

Dipinto's district should be Democratic. It polled 61% for Kerry, but Hay lost to Dipinto 42% to 58% last time out. What is up with this? First Roy, now DiPinto? Something is afoot.
