Harman To Resign


Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif.(Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

Eight weeks later, the general election would occur, pitting the top two primary finishers against each other (if no one receives 50 percent of the vote). Harman is a member of the fiscally-conservative Blue Dog Democrats, and her pending departure will thin their ranks further after a punishing 2010 midterm election for the caucus. The caucus had 54 members in last year's Congress, but that number will be down to 25 after Harman's resignation. This post was updated at 12:09 p.m.
