Levin announces he will not run for re-election

March 7, 2013

levinWASHINGTON – Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., announced today that he will not seek re-election in 2014.   He released the following statement on his website:

“I have decided not to run for re-election in 2014.

“This decision was extremely difficult because I love representing the people of Michigan in the U.S. Senate and fighting for the things that I believe are important to them.

“As Barbara and I struggled with the question of whether I should run again, we focused on our belief that our country is at a crossroads that will determine our economic health and security for decades to come.  We decided that I can best serve my state and nation by concentrating in the next two years on the challenging issues before us that I am in a position to help address; in other words, by doing my job without the distraction of campaigning for re-election.”

Levin has served as a senator since 1979.
