Ben “The Price is Right” Nelson, who infamously sold out on Obamacare, is hanging up his hat.

The people of Nebraska whom he betrayed and embarrassed won’t be shedding any tears.

All together now: DLTDHYOTWO.

Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska will announce today that he is retiring after two terms, a serious blow to Democratic efforts to hold onto their majority in the chamber next November.

Nelson is scheduled to hold a press conference back home in Nebraska as early as today to make his decision official, said several Democratic insiders close to the leadership.

The 70-year-old Nelson was considered one of the most endangered Democratic incumbents this cycle. GOP-affiliated outside groups have already dumped hundreds of thousands of dollars into TV ads bashing Nelson, while the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spent over $1 million on their own ad blitz to bolster his image.

The Cornhusker Kickback was not forgotten. Or forgiven.

Entrenched incumbents of ALL political stripes, you’re on notice.
