Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), one of the loudest congressional critics of News Corp. as a TV station owner, will not seek re-election when his current term ends.
"I will be traveling to my hometown of Paterson [Feb. 15] to announce that I will not seek re-election in 2014," he said. "This is not the end of anything, but rather the beginning of a two-year mission to pass new gun safety laws, protect children from toxic chemicals, and create more opportunities for working families in New Jersey. While I may not be seeking re-election, there is plenty of work to do before the end of this term and I'm going to keep fighting as hard as ever for the people of New Jersey in the U.S. Senate."
