Berry Raised More Than $100,000 in Fourth Quarter

During the last three months of 2009 — as his name shot up House retirement watch lists — Rep. Marion Berry (D-Ark.) raised over $100,000 for his re-election effort.

Berry’s spokeswoman released the fundraising figure on Tuesday as retirement rumors continue to hound the 68-year-old Congressman from northeast Arkansas.

“Congressman Berry is planning to seek reelection in 2010,” Berry’s press secretary Angela Guyadeen said.

The seven-term Berry is one of several veteran Democrats whose 2010 plans will be closely monitored in the wake of recent retirement announcements by fellow Democratic Reps. Dennis Moore of Kansas, Brian Baird of Washington and Bart Gordon and John Tanner of Tennessee.
