Portsmouth Delegate Ken Melvin (D-80) will not run for re-election in 2009, leaving an open Democratic seat.

A little bit of research leads me to believe that there is currently no Democrat who has declared to run there, but the district went 76% for Obama, it is no doubt a perfect opportunity to pick a fresh, progressive Democrat.
