Chris Dodd is expected to announce that he will retire

According to the Washingtonpost Democrat Chris Dodd, the longest serving U.S. senator in Connecticut history, is expected to announce Wednesday that he won't run for a sixth term.

Embattled Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd (D) has scheduled a press conference at his home in Connecticut Wednesday at which he is expected to announce he will not seek re-election, according to sources familiar with his plans.

Dodd's retirement comes after months of speculation about his political future, and amid faltering polling numbers and a growing sense among the Democratic establishment that he could not win a sixth term. It also comes less than 24 hours after Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) announced he would not seek re-election.
