Ron Paul Not Seeking House Reelection; Focusing on GOP Presidential Bid

After serving a total of 12 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) has announced that he will not be seeking another term in the House so that he can concentrate fully on his bid for a Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

USA Today reports:

Paul, 75, told a local paper in his congressional district that he didn't want to be distracted by running two campaigns at once. The libertarian-thinking candidate, who has a devoted following among supporters of his small government views, is running in his third White House campaign.

In an interview with local Texas newspaper The Facts, Paul clarified, “I felt it was better that I concentrate on one election. It’s about that time when I should change tactics.”
