Hawaii’s U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka will not run for reelection in 2012.
Akaka’s retirement brings to 12 the number of members of the 112th Congress — 5 Senate and 2 House Democrats and 2 Senate and 3 House Republicans that have announced plans to leave Congress on or before the January 3, 2013 end of the 112th Congress:

The Democrats’ 53-47 Senate majority is looking more and more precarious.
