That sentiment was echoed by DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (N.Y.), who called Frank’s district “a strong Democratic district” and predicted a Democrat would remain in it next year.

Likely true. The difference, however, is that they'll have to fight for it a lot harder, which diverts resources away from other races.

Also, any democrat replacement would not inherit the seniority, or the committee memberships, that Frank has, so the effect of replacing Frank with another democrat would still be a net loss of power for the democrats.

Plus, even if a Democrat replaces the departing Democrat he or she will have less seniority and will not get the preferred committee assignments. The other Democrats will feel the difference and act accordingly.

Their districts will suffer as a consequence.

BWahahahahahaha ~ that's what you get for re-electing the same old fruit cake 16 times! Get a new fruitcake every now and then.
