Today Congressman Henry Hyde, R-IL, issued the following statement with regard to his future plans in Congress:
I have decided not to run for re-election to Congress in 2006. Despite this difficult decision, I still have a job to do through 2006, including a lot of important work to accomplish as Chairman of the House International Relations Committee. The committee’s upcoming schedule includes hearings and legislation about the UN Oil for Food scandal, Arms Export Laws and U.S. public diplomacy efforts abroad, and more. The fiscal 2006 budget process also is in full swing, which means there is a lot of work to do.
-- So lets watch the fun... It will be interesting to see how much money the woman who ran against him last time raises in the next 6 months.
