Voinovich to not seek re-election

Politico is reporting that Sen. George Voinovich will announce Monday that he will not seek another term.

"A Voinovich spokesman would only confirm that he will make an announcement Monday on his future. But a Senate Republican leadership aide said that Voinovich’s planned retirement is “real” and an announcement will come soon."

This rumor has been swirling around for about 10 days now...names suggested as replacements are John Kasich and Rob Portman, with many throwing out Kasich's name as a candidate for governor as well.

All I can is Thank the Good Lord for small favors. After the tears incident, I had no respect for the Senator at all! sheesh! We will probably get another Democrat to match Senator Brown, which is a bummer but still no Republican is somewhat better than a weak one in my book!
