After 30 years in the Senate, Chris Dodd says he will not seek re-election.
Dodd’s announcement comes as Democrats in Connecticut start an election year – with the real possibility that they wouldn’t be holding the senate seat they’ve held for 46 years.

Today Where We Live, we’re joined by analysts Bill Curry Mark Pazniokas and you - what do you think of Chris Dodd’s decision.
