Brown's office has sent out a release that confirms he won't run for re-election.
We'll have to see how this pans out, but political blog The Palmetto Scoop is saying that Henry Brown is planning a press conference for today to announce that he won't run for re-election; get the details at the Scoop. Also, Politico seems to be confirming.
Why would a GOPer possibly let go of his seat?
And while the seat could flip, I doubt many have a real expectation that Brown would do a better job of holding it than any of his GOP challengers.
Brown has served five two-year terms representing South Carolina's 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House (that's for much of Mount Pleasant and Myrtle Beach; map.)
